Complex Property Division
Consult An Experienced Lawyer During Complex Property Division
In Florida, marital assets are divided based on the principle of equitable distribution. This does not mean the court splits assets 50-50. Instead, assets are divided based on what is most fair, or equitable. When large marital estates and high-value assets are involved, this process can quickly become complex.

Complex Asset Division: The Process
When representing clients during a high-asset divorce, Mr. Brown takes a methodical and multi-pronged approach:
Step one: Separating marital and non-marital assets
Only marital assets are subject to division in a divorce. Assets brought into the marriage or received via gift or inheritance are non-marital.
Step two: Valuing marital property
Assessing the current and future value of all marital properties is essential to ensure assets are divided equitably between the spouses. This includes everything from real estate to investment portfolios, 401(k)s, retirement accounts to professional associations and closely held businesses, and other income-producing properties.
Step three: Creating a strategy that protects your financial interests
After all marital assets have been identified and accurately valued, Mr. Brown develops a legal strategy that protects his clients’ financial wealth. His goal is to get you the assets and income you need to leave your marriage in the most financially secure manner possible.
