Upon a dissolution of marriage in Florida, marital assets are subject to equitable distribution. Equitable distribution means that the Court presumes a 50/50 split between spouses of property acquired during the marriage. The Court, though, will hear arguments against this presumption which may lead to unequal distribution. The property which is considered “marital property” includes not only assets obtained during the marriage but also assets that increased in value during the marriage, such as pensions and stocks. However, certain assets brought to the marriage and acquired during the marriage remain non-marital.
