How can I keep my spouse from selling property before we divorce in Florida?

In Florida, if you are about to get a divorce and you're afraid that your spouse may be taking, or selling, or even hiding, or giving away a lot of the assets that you have or maybe even getting into debt, a court can order that not to happen. It needs to be brought to the courts attention as soon as possible and really is only an option after the divorce has been filed. If it's happened prior to the divorce being filed, then the court has the ability to go back up to 24 months to evaluate any of those transactions to see if it was something that they can take into consideration in an equitable distribution award. A lot of times, even if that does happen, it's something the court can take into consideration and rectify.
