Women: Do not lose out during property division

On Behalf of | Feb 24, 2017 | Property Division

Going through a divorce is never a pleasant prospect. The idea of enduring a Florida divorce is only made worse if a complicated property division process is anticipated. Women who are concerned about their legal rights to joint property need the help of qualified attorneys to help assure the equitable division that is mandated in Florida courts. Too often, women lose out in the divorce because men hide assets or manipulate the process in their favor. Stop that from happening by taking some concrete steps to protect your rights to marital property.

Be sure that you are planning thoroughly for the divorce process. You need to consult financial experts, perhaps even a financial planner or accountant, to make sure you understand your money situation. Women lose out on financial resources because men often control the checkbook — having a financial professional work with your attorney throughout the property division can pay off in the long run.

This planning process may reveal surprising debts and other financial problems. Divorcing spouses may both be held responsible for these debts, even if they were only accrued by one party. Again, an attorney and financial planning team can help investigate your money situation, providing you with the information you need to make the best decisions for yourself and your share of the marital property.

Finally, women are encouraged to fight for their fair share of the marital property — even if you have not worked, you still deserve access to the resources you have earned through the marriage. Women often suffer financial problems because they do not speak up and act to claim property obtained during the marriage. Do not let yourself be victimized by an unscrupulous spouse. Instead, employ the services of a qualified, aggressive attorney who can help you achieve the equitable division of property that you deserve.
