Emotional attachment can make property division challenging

Out of the many stressful situations you may encounter when you divorce, the property division aspect of the legal case might rank close to the top of the list. The reason for this is usually two-fold. First, you know that you need to have a good settlement to help you build your new life. Second, you have to try to battle the emotional attachment you have to some assets.

We know that dealing with the emotional ties that you have to some items might be hard when you know they're going to go to your ex in the property division. There isn't any easy answer to this conundrum, so you have to think about what's best from a practical standpoint. There's a good chance that letting go of some assets will help you in the long run.

As you're thinking about the assets that you have to split up, think about the cost of hanging on to each one. You may have nice memories of the timeshare that's on the beach; however, the upkeep costs of that timeshare may not be worth it.

Be sure that you're thinking realistically about what you can afford when you're dividing property. You're going to be reliant only your income, which might be considerably less than the household income from the marriage. This means that you'll have to make some adjustments.

We realize that no two divorces are exactly alike. We're here to help you review the possible property division options based on how they may impact you. We want you to have a settlement that's in your best interests.
