When you have a lot of assets to divide in divorce, it might seem like you will never get through it all. Even though it can take a while, you need to make sure that you are taking your time with the process. Trying to rush can mean that you make costly mistakes. We are here to review the offers that are on the table to help you determine what is in your best interests.
One of the first things that you need to do is to get a list of assets and debts together. Before you meet with your soon-to-be ex, review these to determine which ones are important to you. This is where you will place your focus, so you aren't wasting your time on unimportant things.
Another important factor here is that you and your ex will need to negotiate. You likely won't get your way on everything, so be prepared to change up your goals a bit while you are dividing everything. Make sure that you don't agree to take on the lion's share of the debts while you only get minimal assets.
