No Stone Unturned In Asset Valuation And Distribution

When assets are divided during divorce, one of the most important elements is determining whether property is considered marital or nonmarital. In Florida, marital assets are divided equitably between the two spouses. However, nonmarital assets are typically awarded to the spouse who brought them into the marriage.

It sounds simple enough, but when individuals have large or complex estates, are business owners, or suspect the other spouse may be hiding assets, it gets more complicated.

The Law Office of Daniel E. Forrest, P.A., works with individuals throughout South Florida who are concerned with protecting their assets during divorce. Attorney Daniel Forrest is a Board Certified Marital & Family Law attorney, and he understands the importance of thoroughly investigating every asset in a marriage.
