You can protect your property interests in a divorce

On behalf of North Tampa Legal Group posted in property division on Tuesday, October 31, 2017.

Florida readers know that a divorce will certainly have an impact on the financial state of both parties. If you are facing the end of your marriage, you likely have concerns about how this step will ultimately affect you, even years after the process is final. Fair property division and the terms of your divorce order are vital for your post-divorce well-being, and there are things that you can do to ensure the protection of your interests.

In a divorce, couples must address all marital property and debt, seeking a division of assets and liabilities that is fair and sustainable. You may have a rightful claim to certain physical assets, and you should not leave the marriage with an unfair portion of debt. One of the ways you can protect yourself is to seek an account of all property, assets and accounts that are subject to division.

When working for a fair property division settlement, negotiation may be beneficial. When Florida couples are able to avoid litigation and work together on a financial and property division settlement, they are more likely to come away with a situation that allows both to have a stable future. However, you would be wise to keep your focus on your own best interests and not let emotions drive your decision making.

Property division is often one of the most contentious and complex aspects of a divorce. You have the right to know what you are entitled to and how to pursue a fair settlement. You can start this process simply by reaching out for help and seeking a complete evaluation of your case.
