Florida law requires that assets in a divorce are divided equitably. A lot of time, people mistake equitable for equal. but the technical meaning of the word is what’s most fair, not necessarily what is equal. What a court typically does in those sorts of cases is they look at how to most fairly distribute the assets between the husband and wife. And, a lot of times, things like the earning power of the two parties, future incomes, things of that nature may matter.
