We Can Assist Clients With Property Division Matters

Property division is a core concern in every divorce. One household becomes two households when a divorce decree is finalized. Every material asset of the marital estate must be assigned to one of the spouses to bring about a complete divorce.

At the law office of Cauthen, Oldham & Associates, P.A., we have assisted enough Floridians through divorce to appreciate the emotional challenges that often go along with a marital breakup. But when it comes to property division, we urge our clients to look beyond emotions and take a business-like approach to the process. A carefully crafted property division settlement can help minimize tax liabilities and maximize protection of assets for the family when divorcing spouses are up-front and cooperative.

Note: some couples divorce amicably and may in fact choose to co-own property or businesses even after the divorce. Such an arrangement would be a contractual arrangement separate from the necessary division of assets that constitute a divorce.

For most couples, divorce means distribution or liquidation of assets including the following:

  • Real estate
  • Vehicles
  • Bank accounts
  • Jewelry
  • Collectibles
  • Antiques
  • Retirement accounts

What To Expect

As is the case with a bankruptcy, a divorce requires husbands and wives to account for all property. Concealment of property during the discovery phase of divorce is a serious legal offense that can result in sanctions including jail time. Cauthen, Oldham & Associates, P.A., often handles high-asset divorces where complexities such as business valuation are part of the process.

A practical approach to property division in divorce has helped many couples keep costs and hassles to a minimum and hasten the conclusion of a divorce, allowing for a fresh start for each spouse.
