One of the things you have to think about when you’re going through a divorce is who is going to get what. The property division process isn’t always easy to sort through because it is often difficult to get things divided evenly. For some people, getting this process done is best handled by staring with the largest assets.
Before you start thinking about who is going to get which assets, you need to write them down. From there, think about how each one can help or harm you in the future. You may need to look at things from a financial standpoint because some assets might be very costly.
We know that it’s hard to think about losing anything that you worked hard for, but we want you to consider what your life will be like if you have things that are draining your finances without providing a lot of benefit. It’s possible that you won’t be able to keep the assets you want just because you can’t afford them on your income.
Once you have the larger assets figured out, you can start to sift through the smaller to balance the bigger ones. When that’s all done, things might not be equitable just yet. The marital debts might be able to balance everything out even more. Just make sure that you’re not getting stuck with the lion’s share of the debts while your ex walks away with more assets.
We’re here to help you throughout this process and to protect your interests. We understand that separating the emotional side of things from the practical side might be complicated, but we’ll work with you, so you can obtain the best settlement possible.
