Case law meeting

Attended a meeting today with a few family law attorneys in Clearwater. One interesting topic that I believe may help our clients is regarding dissipation of assets. If by the time the parties attend trial in a family law matter, an account or other asset has been spent, sold, or otherwise disposed of, recent case law suggests that the other party cannot retrieve any of that property unless they can prove the other party participated in misconduct. This is hard to prove and must be proven before the court will award the non-offending party any portion of the asset. So, the moral of the story is…. get a Court order as early as possible in your case prohibiting either party from disspiating that asset.
