What system does Florida use for dividing property?

Florida law provides for an equitable distribution of the property and debts acquired during your marriage.  There is a presumption that the division of property shall be equal.  The court will consider several factors that would justify an unequal division of the property, including the following:

  • The contributions of each spouse during the marriage, including one spouse's raising the children
  • The financial resources of each spouse
  • One spouse's sacrifices in the other spouse's career building
  • Maintaining the marital home for raising any minor children
  • The benefit of maintaining an asset, such as a business or other income-producing asset
