Jacksonville Property Division Attorney

Get Sound Legal Counsel for Your Divorce

Courts generally uphold property division agreements made between spouses if they are in writing and both parties have had the opportunity to consult with their own lawyers. If an arbitrator or judge makes the decision, property is divided equitably, which often means equally, but not always. There could possibly be an unequal division after all the relevant circumstances have been considered.

Factors the court will consider include:

  • The length of the marriage
  • The debts and liabilities of each spouse
  • The overall economic circumstances of each spouse
  • Whether minor children or either spouse will continue to live in the marital home
  • Each spouse's contribution to the marriage as provider, parent, or homemaker
  • Whether either spouse has intentionally wasted or destroyed marital assets within two years preceding or after the divorce petition
  • The contribution of either spouse to the career or education of the other spouse, and whether either spouse's career or education was interrupted during the marriage
