Serving Clients in Central Florida

Orlando Divorce Lawyer

Since Florida is an equitable distribution state, that means all marital assets and debts must be divided equitably between the parties. This includes your home. Due to the current mortgage crisis, particularly in Florida, this makes an already complicated process even more challenging. If your home is "underwater" or you are behind on mortgage payments, you need the help of an experienced divorce settlement lawyer to look out for your current and future financial interests.

Dividing Home Equity and Divorce

Florida has one of the highest foreclosure rates in the country. You are not alone in having mortgage problems. In any divorce case, marital property must be divided equitably. The court will often have a home appraised and valued for its fair market value. Then the property is divided between the parties. If there is equity in the home, this is divided. The same goes for any debt and liabilities owed on a home.

If you owe more on your home than it is worth the home is considered "underwater." If this sounds similar to your case, there are options available to you and your former spouse. You may want to have one spouse keep the home and wait to see if the home value will go up and agree to later divide any equity. You may have to foreclose, have a short sale or file for bankruptcy. Every situation is different and the best way to handle an individual case will depend on discussions you have with an experienced attorney.
