Fort Lauderdale Asset Division Lawyers
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 Forrest & Forrest, PLLC 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.
Finding, Identifying And Valuating Marital And Nonmarital Assets
When marriages become contentious, spouses may lie about the nature of their assets. In an attempt to prevent assets from being divided, some individuals claim assets are nonmarital, even though the assets should be divided.
Experienced asset division attorneys in Fort Lauderdale have the investigative tools and legal skills to expose those claims. Attorney Daniel Forrest was born and raised in South Florida, and both he and attorney Paulina Forrest know the nuances of Florida laws and courtrooms. To help protect our clients, our attorneys work with business valuation experts and other financial experts to help ensure all assets and income are properly accounted for, including:
- Workers’ compensation benefits
- Personal injury settlements
- Defamation lawsuits
