Guiding Our Clients Through Property Division
One of the primary objectives of divorce is dividing property. Divorcing couples are forced to carefully examine marital assets and liabilities and reach an equitable split moving forward. With the help of a skilled lawyer, these negotiations can run smoothly and efficiently.
At the Law Offices of Jorge Luis Colón, P.A., we are dedicated to helping our clients deal with the many complexities of the divorce process. From disputes centering on child support or custody to other challenging family law issues.
In determining property divisions, we will first divide assets into marital and nonmarital. Typically, assets acquired during the marriage are considered marital assets. However, items, such as gifts or inheritance, are considered nonmarital, and are typically not subject to division. Additionally, many elements can influence the division of property. Factors such as the length of the marriage, the age of the couple, current income and income potential, and any medical conditions that might create a specific financial need.
Clients throughout Florida trust us to carefully examine their retirement accounts, business assets, bank accounts, credit card debt, and any other property that might be divided through the divorce. From the family home to any vacation properties to high-value collections, our firm stands ready to guide our clients through the process of property division.
You Can Divide Debt As Well
It doesn’t take a long marriage for a couple to amass significant debt. Whether the debt is related to medical bills, home repairs or large credit card purchases, negotiating an agreement regarding who pays for the debt after the marriage ends can become a challenging prospect. Many couples work through dividing assets and debts at the same time so an equitable split can be reached. Trust us to fight to find the best division possible in your unique situation.
