The State of Florida is an “equitable distribution” state, which generally means that property acquired between spouses during the marriage will be divided in a manner that is fair, taking into account a number of relevant factors including the conduct of the parties, the separate estate of each party, the contribution of each party to the marriage, and the practice and custom of the parties with reference to their individual incomes.

This standard leaves much room for advocacy of the merits of what is an equitable distribution of property. Our attorneys are known for their expertise in handling high asset, complex cases which require sophisticated financial expertise in matters of business valuation, discovery of assets, personal tax consequences, and other issues incident to the division of sizable marital estates.

In keeping with this expertise, a number of our attorneys have extensive backgrounds in business, financial planning, taxation and accounting. We are equally comfortable handling and trying cases on behalf of spouses with superior knowledge and control of marital assets as well as spouses who have traditionally not been involved in the parties’ financial affairs.

In the event that a settlement is able to be negotiated then a settlement agreement will be drafted and signed by both parties. The attorneys at Beaulieu-Fawcett Law Group are very knowledgeable and proficient at drafting a comprehensive settlement agreement that will help avoid future litigation due to an inadequate settlement agreement. Ensure that you take the time to obtain a comprehensive agreement now so that you can avoid the legal and emotional costs of an inadequate agreement.
