1980 Part One
Cases decided by the district courts of appeal after the supreme court's landmark decision in Canakaris V Canakaris reflect its impact on marriage dissolution law in Florida. The author surveys and critically examines those subsequent cases and concludes that legislation is necessary to establish Florida as a true equitable distribution state and to lend consistency to the division of property by the courts upon dissolution of marriage.
