How to Divide Property During a Divorce

Dividing property and assets during a divorce is one of the most difficult and complicated parts of the emotional process.  Very often there are conflicting views on who should keep what and how best to distribute marital assets and debt.  Minnesota law assumes that all property will be divided equally but putting this into practice can be surprisingly complex.  Divorce mediation can help you and your divorcing spouse come up with a plan for dividing your marital property in a fair and equitable way.  AMS Mediation of Burnsville, MN offers strong divorce mediation services, including support for dividing property to divorcing couples in the Minnesota area.

How To Divide Property During A Divorce, MN

One of the most effective strategies for fairly distributing assets during a divorce is methodically listing all pieces of property that you and your divorcing spouse share.  This master list will fully document all of your assets and should include the overall value of each item (debts and assets).  Our team of mediators will use this list to help you negotiate a fair distribution.  We find that it is very often couples working through the logistical aspects of a divorce are able to see a path to divide their assets once it is all written down. A fair division of assets and debts will lay the groundwork for a more positive relationship after the divorce. Most often any property that was owned prior to the divorce will belong to the original owner after a divorce – that property is not divided equally.
