Okaloosa County Property Division Lawyers
Protecting Your Finances & Your Assets in a Divorce
After you have received divorce papers, or when you and your spouse have decided to split up, you may wonder about the division of your property. The thought of losing some of the items you love, have purchased, or have earned throughout your marriage can be cause for concern. Instead of panicking, you should be advised to speak with a Okaloosa County divorce attorney who can provide you with information on the way property is divided in the state of Florida.
Understanding Community & Exempted Property
There are two main types of property which are considered in the property division process: community property and non-marital assets. Those items or assets which you received or acquired before the marriage would not be considered part of the property which is split up between you and your spouse. Most other financial assets and property will be divided equally, depending on whether you are able to have an amicable discussion about who will get which items.
For the most part, community property will be split 50/50, including:
- Real estate
- Financial assets
- Savings and retirement funds
- Misc. household items
- Debts and money owed
