Dividing your artwork during divorce

Determining who gets what after a divorce in Florida can be stressful and complex. Generally, you will have to divide retirement accounts, vehicles, houses and debt, but one of the most difficult pieces of property to determine can be artwork. This is especially true if you are the artist. We at The Law Office of Philip J. Shipani have created this guide to help you know what to expect if you find yourself needing to split up your art.

Be careful what you post on social media during divorce
