A Firm Advocate For Florida Families

Fight For A Fair Distribution Of Your Marital Assets

Even divorces that start out friendly and cooperative often become emotional once money or children are involved. Having a capable, experienced equitable distribution attorney on your side can help you make the case for your fair share of your marital assets.

At the Law Office of Karen C. Ozyjowski, P.A., I understand Florida’s equitable distribution laws, and how to use them to protect your financial and material future. Responsive, straightforward and dedicated to helping you achieve your goals in a divorce, I will work with you directly to create your personalized legal strategy. I emphasize setting reasonable expectations and helping you understand your options, and I am not afraid to aggressively assert your rights in the courtroom when necessary.

Understanding Equitable Distribution

Under Florida law, all marital property is divided equally in a divorce. Florida courts typically consider all property acquired during your marriage to be marital property, regardless of whose paycheck it was purchased with or in whose name it is titled. This can include vehicles, houses and real estate, gifts between spouses, and retirement accounts owned by one or both of the spouses.

Demonstrating that an asset is not subject to equitable distribution can be essential to keeping it for yourself. This also avoids the requirement that your former spouse be equitably compensated for a marital asset you retain after a divorce.

Building a case that protects your property takes diligence, focus and careful preparation from a skilled equitable distribution attorney. To advance your interests in an equitable distribution dispute, I and my team will examine factors such as:

  • Contributions of both spouses to the marriage, from child-rearing to income
  • Future economic situations and opportunities of both partners
  • Benefits of keeping ownership over the marital home, jointly-owned business or other assets

I have over 20 years of experience creating strong cases, and I am ready to help you establish what property from your marriage can be equitably divided, and which property should be kept separate.
