Property And Marital Settlement Agreements

Florida is an "equitable distribution" state, which generally means that property acquired between spouses during the marriage will be divided equally, subject to being unequal after taking into account a number of statutory factors, including whether dissipation occurred, the separate estate of each party, the contribution of each party to the marriage, and the desirability to maintain a home for a minor child to name a few.

This standard leaves room for advocacy of the merits of what is an equitable distribution of property. Our attorneys are known for their expertise in handling complex cases which require sophisticated financial expertise in matters of business valuation, discovery of assets, personal tax consequences and other issues incident to the division of sizable marital estates.

In keeping with this expertise, a number of our attorneys have extensive backgrounds in business, financial planning, taxation and accounting. We are equally comfortable handling and trying cases on behalf of spouses with superior knowledge and control of marital assets as well as spouses who have traditionally not been involved in the parties' financial affairs.

In the event that a financial settlement is negotiated, then a settlement agreement will be drafted and signed by both parties. The attorneys at Beaulieu-Fawcett Law Group, P.A., are very knowledgeable and proficient at drafting a comprehensive settlement agreement that will help avoid future litigation due to an inadequate settlement agreement. Ensure that you take the time to obtain a comprehensive agreement now so that you can avoid the legal and emotional costs of an inadequate agreement. Our law office is in Delray Beach, Florida and we serve Palm Beach, Broward and Martin counties
