Equitable Distribution in Property Division in Pembroke Pines

Pembroke Pines Divorce Attorney: Equitable Division of Assets and Debts

If you are considering filing for divorce, you are probably curious as to how marital property will be distributed between you and your spouse. While it is ultimately the judge in your case who will have the final decision on the equitable distribution of your property, having a Pembroke Pines family law attorney on your side will greatly improve your chances of getting fair treatment in the division of property.

I am a steadfast advocate for my clients' rights and will fight hard to protect your interests, work to see that non-marital property is not incorrectly classified as marital property, and do everything I can to ensure that you receive your fair share of the marital assets. At the Law Office of Steven Friedman I believe everyone should have access to skilled counsel. I take pride in being able to provide high-quality legal services at an affordable price.

Clients who retain my services will not have their case handed off to a paralegal or legal assistant; they will work one-on-one with our lead attorney. Having spent more than 30 years handling divorce and other family law cases, I have amassed in-depth understanding of the factors judges will commonly use to determine how property will be allocated in the dissolution of a marriage.

What is equitable distribution and how does it work?

Equitable distribution is a term used to describe the approach a judge will take when dividing marital assets during divorce proceedings. Equitable distribution is not the same as equal distribution, nor does it have anything to do with alimony. As most property cannot be simply divided right down the middle, there are a number of factors the judge must take into consideration before determining how a couple's marital property and assets will be allocated.

The duration of the marriage, each spouse's contribution to the marriage, their individual economic circumstances and current sources of income, whether there are children from the marriage, and if either party has an interest in retaining any particular asset will all be reviewed prior to making a final determination. If either party attempts to deplete or intentionally get rid of assets so as to prevent the other party from obtaining possession, that will also be taken into consideration - and will not be viewed kindly by the court.

Why leave your future in the hands of the judge, or allow yourself to be manipulated by your spouse, when my firm can fight to protect your interests?
