How are assets split in a LGBT divorce?
Assets are shared in an LBGT divorce in the same manner that they are shared in any other dissolution of marriage proceeding in Florida. Any and all assets or liabilities acquired during the term of the marriage are shared equally, initially. That is the presumption. Thereafter, under special circumstances, the court may award one party an unequal distribution. However, in order to receive an unequal distribution, the party requesting the unequal distribution must plead for, ask for the unequal distribution, and must be able to prove why he or she is entitled to an unequal distribution.
