Diving assets can often be a complicated process for people who are divorcing. A lot of people think about items like homes and vehicles when they think of property division. As we discussed last week, those aren't the only items that people might fight over when they divorce. In some cases, family pets are what cause a huge issue during the divorce.
We know that dividing assets is difficult. We know that you have worked hard and cherish the items that you have accumulated with your ex. Still, property division is an important part of the divorce process. By paying attention to the property division process, you can ensure that you start your single life off with the best start possible.
It isn't enough to just consider the current worth of items. You have to consider a variety of things, such as the future worth of retirement assets, so you can get an accurate picture of the worth of the assets.
When it comes to items that don't have monetary value, things can get more complex because you can't use the monetary value to determine how it should be handled. Think about family pets. You and your ex might both want the dog. Are you willing to give up something else to keep the dog? If so, you might have a bargaining tool.
We can help you learn what to consider during the property division phase of your divorce. We can help you to ensure that you aren't getting an unfair settlement. We work with you to find out what items are important for you and go from there with the property division process.
