Debt can be problematic in any marriage as well as when the marriage ends. However, in some divorce situations resulting from irreconcilable differences, one spouse may have never even known about the other party's debt. Either way, debt is a critical matter to address during a divorce proceeding in Florida.
During a divorce proceeding, debts are considered to be marital even if one spouse might not know about them. For instance, in extreme cases, one spouse may be unaware of a loan taken out by the other party, who had been leading a totally different lifestyle than anticipated. For this reason, scrutinizing debts carefully is important.
