Equitable Distribution in Florida
Florida courts use the concept of "equitable distribution" when
deciding how spouses will divide their assets in divorce. This means that
spouses must divide their assets in a way that is "equitable"
or fair, depending on numerous factors. While equal division is considered
equitable in many divorces, there are others divorce cases in which it
is fairer to distribute the assets unequally. According to Florida law,
one of the factors that the state courts must consider is whether it is
actually more desirable to prevent one spouse from laying claim to the
business, corporation or professional practice of the other spouse.
There are many cases in which only one spouse truly deserves ownership
of the business or a share in the business' profits. In other cases,
dividing the business and its assets may actually be the fairest solution.
