After going through my own divorce, I understand the importance of helping you through this emotional situation so that you can build a new future.
How Does Florida Handle Retirement Assets?
In our state, retirement assets count as marital assets. A spouse may receive a portion of their partner’s retirement assets accumulated after the marriage. Florida also considers retirement assets separate from alimony. Therefore, you have a lot to lose if you are the supporting spouse and a lot to gain if you are the receiving spouse.
Dividing Debts: What To Know
Like marital assets, marital debts are subject to equitable division. Joint accounts, auto loans and mortgages are some common examples of joint debts. However, credit cards or bank accounts under a single name rarely count as marital debts and are rarely divided between spouses.
