How Do You Divide Property In A Divorce?

When you decide to move forward with a divorce, there are many complex issues that need to be settled including how to divide up all of the property that you and your spouse have shared. This may include furniture, collectables, china, computers, home office equipment, jewelry, clothing, cars, boats and any other personal property that has been shared. This is in addition to financial assets, real estate and debt that you share. You may assume the only way to divide this up fairly is to enlist the support of lawyers and the court system. While that is one path you can follow, mediation is also a very effective tool for helping you and your divorcing spouse divide property equitably and with minimal conflict. If you live in the Burnsville, MN area, AMS Mediation can help with this.
