While the laws apply the same in high asset cases as they do in cases with little or no assets, high asset cases typically require a better understanding of finance and the review more financial documentation.

Equitable Distribution of Assets & Liabilities:
Florida law provides for an equitable distribution of the marital assets and liabilities. In distributing the marital assets and liabilities between the parties, the court shall also set apart to each spouse that spouse’s nonmarital assets and liabilities. The court must begin with the premise that the distribution should be equal, unless there is a justification for an unequal distribution based on all relevant factors. See our asset and debt distribution page for more information.
