Florida is an equitable distribution state, which simply means the goal in all divorces is for each party to leave the marriage with an equal amount of liability and assets. Any asset or liability that is accrued during the marriage is considered marital and is going to be included in the equitable distribution worksheet.
There are some small exceptions, for example, if you and your spouse entered into a pre-nuptial or post-nuptial agreement, or if one both spouses received an inheritance that was never commingled as a marital asset. If you receive an inheritance and you keep that money in a separate account in only your name and never give your spouse access to that account then that would be considered an non-marital asset and therefore not subject to equitable distribution.
