In Florida non marital property is divided as follows in a divorce:

Nonmarital property includes any assets and liabilities acquired prior to the marriage. In some limited instances property acquired during the marriage is also considered a spouse’s nonmarital property.

Unless steps are taken to change the title or the value of the property in the marriage, the following types of property are considered nonmarital assets:

  • Assets or liabilities that a party came into the marriage with that retains its value;
  • Assets or liabilities acquired by an exchange for a nonmarital asset;
  • Assets or liabilities acquired by noninterspousal gift or inheritance;
  • Income derived from nonmarital assets during the marriage (unless the income was used by the parties as a marital asset);
  • Any assets and liabilities excluded from being considered marital property pursuant to a valid written agreement (i.e., a valid prenuptial agreement); and
  • Any liabilities incurred where one spouse forged the other spouse’s name without permission.
