Property division is one of the biggest issues that a couple will face during a divorce. This determines how assets and liabilities, such as your homestead, automobiles, savings, retirement accounts and debts, will be distributed. For high net worth families or business owners, there are additional complexities to address. Regardless of your specific assets, a skilled divorce attorney can ensure that your rights to your marital property are protected.
Protecting Your Rights to Marital Property
The law firm of Ferraez & Lucas helps our divorce clients understand the complex laws surrounding property division. Florida is an equitable distribution state. This means that not everything acquired during the marriage is considered community property. So when determining a final order on property division, a judge will aim for a fair distribution, but it will not necessarily be 50/50. Through an in-depth knowledge of pertinent laws, along with years of experience, our lawyers will design an effective legal strategy aimed at protecting your rights to marital property. We are skilled in creating fair division agreements that still remain beneficial to our clients.

Our diverse legal team is made up of attorneys who have substantial business backgrounds as well as MBAs.
