The terms of your divorce must be based on your situation. You can't think about what worked for someone else when you are trying to find solutions for the issues you are facing. This is especially true for property division.
Some people have it easier here because they don't have as many assets as others. When you don't have as many assets, you won't need to divide as much. There also won't be as much that has to go through the valuation process.
We know that you might be curious about what is going to happen to your assets. In most cases, both parties in the divorce can work together to divide things. This provides some measure of control with what you are going to walk away with.
There are many different points that you need to think about for this process. One of these is that your budget is going to change. This can make a big difference in what you can afford. There might be times when it is best to bypass an asset that has a high cost of upkeep.
Another consideration that you have to think about is that some assets might help your children to feel more secure. Oftentimes, the parent who keeps the children with them will seek to keep the home that they grew up in. When this can be worked out, both parents might agree that the arrangement does benefit the children.
We realize that this is just one more thing for you to deal with when you are going through the divorce. We can help you find out what options you have, so you can move forward with your plan.
