Property Division in High-Asset Divorces
Aggressive Litigation in Divorce Court
The more property a couple has, the more complicated the divorce can be.
divorces involving large amounts of money or high-value assets are settled through
litigation. Catherine W. Real, P.A. can assist with the process of arranging
your property and distributing marital assets either in court or out of
court. Some decisions are too complicated to make in collaboration with
an ex-spouse, but she can determine whether your case can avoid the complexities of court.
Instead, the firm can represent you in court and be a tenacious advocate
for your rights to particular properties in a divorce involving parties
with high incomes or high net worth. You don't want the assets and
income you worked so hard to accumulate to be divided unfairly when you
separate from-your spouse. Catherine W. Real, P.A. can fight hard to protect
your income in these circumstances.
Dispelling the Myth of Equitable Distribution
Many people are under the assumption that
equitable distribution is an equal, 50-50 distribution of all marital assets. This is not true.
In fact, the Florida courts will distribute assets and liabilities in
a way that is most fair. While the court starts with the intention to
divide assets as close to a 50-50 division as possible, various circumstances
may alter the way that the case is resolved. Catherine W. Real, P.A. can
argue on your behalf if you hope to receive more than 50% of your assets
in a Florida property distribution case.
Assets Subject to Division
Some of the assets that may be considered marital property in your case include:
- Bank accounts
- Collectibles and collections
- Motor vehicles
- Military retirement finds
- Investment accounts
