“Hi, I’m Gary Dolgin, one of only 28 lawyers in Hillsborough County who is a Board Certified Expert in Marital and Family Law.

If you’re going through a divorce and you’re dividing your marital assets and liabilities, it doesn’t matter how they are titled.

I once had a wife come into my office and say, ‘My husband says everything belongs to him.’

If you have issues regarding dividing your hard-earned marital assets and liabilities that you’ve accumulated over years of marriage to your spouse, we can help.

We will work meticulously with you to trace the mixing of non-marital assets with marital assets, prevent unfair distribution and ensure that no assets or debts are overlooked in the final accounting.

We will also ensure that your rights are upheld and your marital assets and debt are divided equitably so that your breakup does not disadvantage you financially.

When you come to the Law Offices of Gary Dolgin, we will treat you like family. We will guide you through the process and explain everything that is going to happen.

Divorce is a stressful time and we recognize that, for over 30 years we’ve been guiding people through one of the most difficult times in their life. We will be here for you.”

Equitable Distribution Lawyer in Tampa - Gary S. Dolgin Has The Expertise To Help You Divide Your Marital Assets & Debts

With over 30 years of experience in divorce in the Tampa Bay area, Gary Dolgin has the knowledge and experience to help you with all aspects of your divorce, including the equitable distribution of your marital assets and liabilities.

In Florida, assets acquired and liabilities incurred during a marriage are considered marital assets. When couples divorce, those assets are subject to equitable distribution.

Under this standard, when couples cannot reach an agreement on dividing their assets, courts will divide marital assets in a manner that is fair and equitable, though not necessarily equal.

At the Law Offices of Gary S. Dolgin, we can help ensure that your rights are upheld and your marital assets and debt are divided equitably so that your breakup does not disadvantage you financially.

Distinguishing Between Marital Assets and Non-Marital Assets

Before the actual distribution of marital assets can happen, assets must be valued and classified as either marital or non-marital.

Marital assets comprise assets acquired during the marriage and available for distribution. Non-marital property consists of assets acquired prior to the marriage.

Marital assets may include anything you have acquired during the marriage, such as:

  • the marital home and vacation homes
  • stocks and bonds
  • automobiles
  • bank accounts
  • investment accounts
  • home furnishings
  • timeshares
  • retirement funds
  • pensions and annuities
  • businesses
