Do I Have to Wait Until My Florida Divorce is Over Before Getting My Property?

Often in a Florida divorce, there is a need to have an early division of certain assets so that you don't have to wait until the end of a divorce trial. For example, there may be a difference of opinion as to the sale of a piece of rental property. One spouse may refuse to sign the sale agreement while the other spouse recognizes that without the sale, there are insufficient funds to pay the ongoing minimum living expenses.

Before 2008, there was no way to resolve this problem, but the Florida legislature saw a need to create a remedy. Your expert Tampa divorce lawyer can now guide you through a process that leads you to a reasonable solution to early property division.

The Florida divorce law now allows for something called interim equitable distribution. With this process, your Tampa dissolution of marriage lawyer can get an order from the judge that would award final ownership of certain property to each spouse before the divorce becomes final.

The best divorce lawyers in Tampa are happy for their clients that they now have this option.
