When a Florida couple goes through divorce, a great deal of focus is placed on dividing their marital assets. In some cases, however, the assets in question fall outside the bounds of what the law is equipped to handle. An example is found in a high profile legal dispute between actress Sophia Vergara and her former partner. While not married, the two are embroiled in an unusual property division dispute regarding their frozen embryos.
In an attempt to have a child, the couple went through the process of creating multiple embryos, and even tried the surrogacy process two separate times. Those attempts failed, and the couple decided to part ways. The agreement that they signed at the time the embryos were created states that the embryos would remain frozen in the event that the couple could not agree on how to move forward.
