Manatee County Family And Divorce Attorneys

One of the most important things that many Manatee County family and divorce attorneys do is help with matters involving the division of property. At McDermott Law Offices, our family and divorce attorneys in Manatee County FL always strive to help both parties reach an amicable understanding, one that comprises all areas of the dissolution of a marriage. We will work to make this happen, but we will always make sure your rights are completely protected throughout the process.


Property Division – A Quick Overview

The Manatee County family and divorce attorneys with McDermott Law Offices have more than two decades of experience in the area of property division. Florida law will generally mandate that all property and debts that are part of a marriage are equitably distributed between the two spouses. But Florida is not a community property state – hence the term “equitably distributed.” The court will try to be as fair as possible, but there’s a chance that one spouse will receive significantly more than the other.


Any family and divorce attorneys in Manatee County FL will need to make sure you have a thorough understanding of the factors that go into determining equitable property division. These include how long you were married, you and the other party’s economic circumstances, each party’s respective contribution to the acquisition of income, and many others. We will make sure we take the time to carefully spell out these and all other factors so you are as informed as possible.


You really need a legal representative who will look out for your best interests when it comes to property division. The reason is that, unlike alimony or child support, you can’t modify a property division order once its rendered by the judge overseeing your case.
