How to Begin Dividing Your Property
Being involved in a divorce is a stressful situation for anyone to handle. One of the most trying things you will have to do is divide your property between yourself and your spouse. Many of the items that you have collected during your marriage have memories that accompany them. Reliving these memories is difficult and should be dealt with as quickly as possible.
The first step you should take in dividing your assets is to go through your home. You need to take this time to assign values to every item that will be included as an asset. If you and your spouse agree, certain items are allowed to be left off the listing of property. Once you have assigned a value for all communal property, you have two options that are available. The first option is to meet with your spouse and both attorneys to sort out the different pieces of property between the two of you. If you are able to speak peacefully with your spouse, this will help to resolve the process more quickly than taking it to court.
The other option available would be to take your case to a judge. When you see the judge, he or she will go through your list of property and decide what needs to be divided between you and your spouse. Taking your case to court can take up a lot of your time, and it will extend the time it will take to finalize your divorce.
