Knowing value of marital property helps assure a fair settlement

On Behalf of | Jun 3, 2016 | Property Division

If you are in the process of getting divorced, you are likely aware that you have issues that must be resolved. In fact, a divorce could end up occupying a large portion of your time until the final decree is signed. This is because you are essentially reorganizing your entire life. And in addition to being time-consuming, working out the terms of a divorce can be emotionally taxing as well as expensive. And matters can become all the more difficult if you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse are in serious conflict.

And while it is understandable that you want to put the ordeal behind you as soon as possible, you should make sure that you don’t act against your own best interests. And certainly you want to make sure that you get your fair share where the division of property is concerned.

As such, it is very important that you fully understand how property is assessed for division. This means distinguishing marital from non-marital property. Once you know which assets you have a measure of claim to, you need to know the exact value of those assets. And an experienced family law attorney can help you work through these details.
