TAMPA DIVORCE MEDIATION – PROPERTY DIVISION
Dividing Your Marital Assets Without a Courtroom Fight
Florida law requires an equitable distribution of your marital assets and marital debts. This can be a complex and stressful undertaking—and you can easily slide into litigation if one spouse gets emotionally invested in a particular distribution scenario or thinks they are not getting a fair deal.
The law office of Beth Reineke in Tampa, Florida is committed to alternatives to divorce litigation, even if property division is complex or complicated by other ancillary factors. Our Tampa property division lawyer believes that there is typically a fair and practical solution to dividing the marital estate that serves the interests of both parties. Through mediation or collaborative divorce, or assistance with your uncontested divorce, Attorney Reineke works to spare clients from an expensive and acrimonious courtroom fight.
“She mixed her life experience, and legal training, with patience, logic, and persuasion, to move our case forward to a more thoughtful, and peaceful resolution, for everyone involved.”
Attorney Beth Reineke is a Supreme Court Certified divorce mediator with over 30 years of legal experience. She welcomes couples throughout the Hillsborough, Pinellas, and Pasco counties of Florida. Arrange a free phone consultation today to discuss how you and your spouse can avoid spending your children’s college funds litigating over your marital property.
While most couples choose to turn to litigation to resolve such matters—and, in some cases, have no choice—there are alternatives to spending a considerable amount of time and money battling property issues in court. Instead, you and your former partner can work with a trained mediator and resolve your property division matters together. During mediation, Beth Reineke, acting as a neutral third party, will use her training in matters such as the law and dispute resolution to guide you and your spouse to a mutual resolution. This allows you to make your own decisions, rather than relying on a judge.
How Our Mediator Will Work With You
Every couple’s situation is unique—some assets cannot be split in half; some assets may be blended combinations of marital property and separate property; one spouse may be in no position to take on a lot of debt; etc. There are many considerations for the immediate aftermath of divorce and your long-term best interests.
Attorney mediator Beth Reineke is skilled at helping couples define their underlying wants, goals, and needs and at showing them that there are many possible scenarios to split assets in a fair and reasonable way. She will challenge you to examine your own entrenched notions that may be getting in the way of a solution: Why do you want the house? Do you have sentimental attachments? What assets are most important to you, and what are you willing to trade?
