Are You Facing Divorce After A Long-Term Marriage? We Can Help.
Divorce after a long-term marriage carries with it unique and complicated
problems. Due to the duration of the marriage, there may be significant
assets accumulated over time, often resulting in a high-asset divorce.
In some cases, there is a lifetime of assets to sort through and distribute
between the spouses.
If your long-term marriage is ending, it is crucial that you have a strong
divorce attorney on your side. Not all divorce lawyers have the knowledge

Understanding Marital Property Division
How do you start dividing a lifetime of wealth? A skilled divorce attorney
at Anne E. Raduns, P.A., can help you through this complicated process.
There are many issues to consider in a divorce involving a long-term marriage,
but often the primary concern is property division, otherwise known as
the equitable distribution of assets and liabilities.
Any assets or debt acquired during the marriage may be considered marital
property and thus subject to division between the spouses. With a long-term
marriage, years and years of accumulated property may need to be evaluated.
In some long-term marriage cases, virtually all assets are subject to division.
Marital property may include:
- Real estate
- Investments, stocks and bonds
- Pensions and retirement savings, such as IRAs and 401(k)s
- Bank accounts
- QDROs (Qualified Domestic Relations Orders)
- Cars, collectibles and personal property
- Art, antiques and furniture
- Fine jewelry
Alimony And Long-Term Marriages
Florida has recently changed alimony laws, including defining what is considered
a long-term marriage for alimony purposes.
Marriages over 17 years in duration are long-term marriages, and alimony
is presumed. Other factors that contribute to alimony include the dependency of one
spouse on another spouse, age, health, and the contribution of each party
to the marriage, including services rendered in homemaking, child care,
education and career-building of the other party.
