When a couple comes to the conclusion that their marriage is over, there
are numerous factors which must be considered in order to get a final
divorce decree. As the state of Florida is an
equitable distribution state, the couple must first decide how their marital assets and debts
will be divided. Should the couple be unable to come up with an agreement
as to the division of property and assets, they will be facing litigation
and a divorce trial. In a contested divorce, all matters pertaining to
custody, property, spousal support, assets, debts and other such aspects
will be brought up in hearings and the judge will have final say as to
the equitable distribution of all marital properties.
In cases where one person has specific heirlooms, sentimental possessions
and other property that means a lot to him or her, it will be important
to take measures to ensure he or she is able to retain those particular
assets. A hand-crafted jewelry box handed down from generation to generation
is probably something you would not want to see awarded to your spouse
during divorce proceedings. Your grandmother's wedding ring is another
asset you will probably want to keep in your possession. Inheritance money,
or a property, you received from a deceased relative is something you
will not want to part with in a divorce. These matters can become very
complex when there has been a comingling of funds over the term of the marriage.
The most effective way to protect your most valued possessions is to retain
legal representation from an experienced Broward County divorce attorney
who will help you file for an
uncontested divorce. In an uncontested divorce, both parties are required to come to an agreement
as to the division of all property and assets, as well as agreed upon
terms for child support, visitation and other related matters. Once the
agreement is finalized, a judge will be able to review it and, providing
the agreement meets certain legal requirements, a final divorce decree
can be issued.
