The Putnam County property division attorneys at Hedstrom and Harris can help you in this pursuit. Although this is just a chapter of your life, it’s a very important one.

Marital & Separate Property

Part of the dissolution of marriage process is the distribution of marital property and debts between the spouses. If two spouses cannot reach an agreement concerning the division of these assets, a judge will decide for them.

Florida law distinguishes between property and debts that are considered shared, or marital property, and those that are separate, and owned solely by the individual.

Marital property includes:

  • Property that has been acquired during the marriage
  • Profit from separate property that has been obtained during the marriage as a result of the other spouse’s efforts or contributions
  • Gifts that have been given between the spouses
  • Tangible property, such as cars or real estate, that the couple owns together
  • Retirement or pension benefits that have been earned during the marriage.

Separate property includes:

  • Property that was acquired prior to the marriage
  • Any income from a non-marital asset, unless a joint contribution was made
  • Gifts to one spouse from someone other than his/her spouse
  • Any liability that resulted from forgery or an unauthorized signature of the other spouse
  • Anything agreed upon by the couple, in writing, as non-marital property
