In Kyriakou v. Kyriakou, the Second District Court of Appeals held that the trial court should not have made an unequal equitable distribution of marital assets based on the Husband’s superior ability to earn income alone and without considering the other factors listed in the statute as disparate earning capacity alone should not form the sole basis for an unequal equitable distribution.  

The Appellate Court also took issue with the lack of findings on the record to support the categorization and valuation of the parties assets and made clear that if a judgment is being based on the dissipation of marital assets there must be evidence of it and specific findings of misconduct.
