Reducing Conflict And Empowering Clients
Property Division Often Sparks Conflict
Arriving at a fair and equitable division of property in divorce can be a difficult process for many people. Changes in the economy have shifted the focus of property division discussions in many households in Florida.
Traditionally, the marital home was a main point of contention in family court. However, some homeowners no longer have significant equity in the home, making other marital assets more important. In other households, multiple properties may have differing values of equity and analyzing the capital gains consequences is critical in determining the fair market value of different assets.
