Helping You Achieve Fair Property Division

Dividing marital property may be the most significant (and most difficult) issue in your divorce. Under Florida's equitable distribution law, assets and debts are not necessarily split equally. It can be hard to know what you have and where you stand.

At McCauley Law Offices, P.A., we help clients untangle the knots of marriage and protect their rightful share of the assets. We strive for a fair, practical and efficient settlement that lets you go your separate ways. Yet we will strongly defend your interests in the event that complicated or contentious asset division matters must be settled in court.

A Fair Distribution Of Assets And Debts

Attorney Carroll L. McCauley III has practiced in family law in Bay County, Florida, for more than 19 years. He will identify nonmarital property and assist with determining the value of remaining assets and debts to get an accurate picture of the full estate, including:

  • Pensions and retirement accounts
  • The house and other real estate
  • Investments and savings
  • Vehicles
  • Furnishings, valuables and personal possessions
  • Credit cards, loans and other liabilities

Then we can address any statutory factors for deviating from an equal distribution, such as the financial position of each spouse, length of marriage, contributions to the marriage and career sacrifices, contributions to marital wealth or waste of marital assets by one spouse.

The court will address the question of spousal support (alimony) after property division is settled. It is most commonly awarded in high-asset divorces and longer marriages.

Helping You Reach Your Goals

Our comprehensive accounting and assessment gives you options to negotiate favorable terms or the confidence to stand your ground in contested proceedings. Our lawyer and legal secretaries emphasize communication and accessibility to reduce your anxiety during a highly stressful process.

That is all part of our larger client-centered approach to the law. We work hard to maximize options for clients by tailoring our legal guidance to your particular circumstances.

It begins when we first meet with you. We talk to you to learn how your case is different from other cases. It is often in those details where a case can be won.

We also want you (and the other side) to know that we prepare your case from the very beginning. That means you enjoy the leverage of being able to choose to negotiate or to go trial, whichever best protects your rights.

In doing so, you will be able to move forward confidently because you will know that you have relied on the seasoned legal judgment of our firm's legal veterans.
