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

    "Forever Grateful"
    I have to go into detail here because there’s no way That I cannot give high praise for what Nicole Carlucci did for my daughter and I. I’ve learned the hardest way possible that men tend to be at a great disadvantage when dealing with a divorce and with custody problems. My ex-wife kidnapped our child and had every intention of destroying our bond and the great relationship we have. It’s the saddest thing in the world how some people take their own struggles and personal feelings out by using their children as pawns and manipulating to hurt others. Which is why I could not be happier and more grateful for the day I walked into Porter & Porter Law Firm. From day one, my story was heard, understood, and through a year and a half of what felt like full on war just so I could maintain my relationship with me daughter without us being ripped from each other’s lives, Nicole Carlucci supported me and used her expertise to get as close to the absolute best result possible. She never gave up or gave in and that helped me to stay strong, too, when there would be days or weeks my daughter and I would not see each other. If not for Nicole, I can only imagine how much more awful such a nightmare of a situation could have gotten. However, I am now divorced, continue to have an amazing relationship with my daughter, and have court orders to hold my ex responsible and accountable so that way certain things will hopefully never happen again, and if they do, I know who I am calling!! Nicole’s passion to help someone being taking advantage of and her drive to ensure justice be served when someone is manipulating the system is exactly what my daughter and I needed so we can live a happy life. Thank you Nicole and Firm!!

    "You really took years of stress off my shoulder and I can finally have clarity in my mind."
    Over the past month or so I had made a call to the Law offices of Jason Porter because I needed to resolve an issue that occurred over 7 years ago. Once I explained the situation the secretary sent me directly to Jonathan Thacher. All I can say is that Thacher did an amazing job handling my case and I am extremely happy right now. I no longer have to worry about that problem ever again thanks to Thacher. The work was effective and everything went through perfectly. Thank you so much man you really took years of stress off my shoulder and I can finally have clarity in my mind.

    "Aggressive and Compassionate. Highly Recommend."
    I'd been accused of something I did not do. My situation was a total nightmare. I consulted with Attorney Porter and he assured me that my tough situation could be handled. Attorney Gary Shumar tirelessly worked my case, while showing patience and empathy when I felt frustrated. Needless to say, my charges were dropped. I highly recommend this firm.
