This is definitely the question we get asked most often. Our 35+ years of experience offer you the best chance at winning your divorce case and getting you the marital assets you deserve.
Typically marital assets and liabilities, which include everything accumulated during the marriage – regardless of whose name it is in, are split 50/50. This most often includes:
- The division of assets and liabilities
- Child support
- Spousal support (alimony).
The division of assets and liabilities when filing for divorce is extremely complex, especially if you have no experience with the laws in your state. In addition, the calculation of child support payments does not often cover extraordinary expenses related to raising children. This can include: braces, computers, cell-phone plans, car payments and insurance, prom, after school clubs/athletics, and the like. Also, there is no set guideline for calculating alimony or spousal support in the state of Florida. The law does state that once divorced, both parties and the children should be able to live in a manner roughly equivalent to that as if you had stayed together.
