Divorce Lawyer Tampa Gary Dolgin Explains That Competent Substantial Evidence Is Needed When Distributing Assets and Liabilities During Divorce Proceedings

In any contested dissolution case not settled by stipulation or agreement, the court’s order distributing marital assets and liabilities must be supported by factual findings based on “competent substantial evidence.”

The court’s written order must specifically address the following:

(a) Clear identification of nonmarital assets and ownership interests;

(b) Identification of marital assets, including the individual valuation of significant assets, and designation of which spouse shall be entitled to each asset;

(c) Identification of the martial liabilities and designation of which spouse shall be responsible for each liability; and

(d) Any other findings necessary to advise the parties or the reviewing court of the trial court’s rationale for the distribution of marital assets and allocation of liabilities.
