Divorce can be emotionally draining, and navigating property division can add another layer of stress. This guide aims to shed light on the process and how our real estate services can support you.

Understanding Property Division in Your State

The laws governing property division vary by state. Two main systems exist:

Equitable Distribution: Assets are divided fairly, but not necessarily equally.
Community Property: All marital property is split 50/50.

Identifying Marital vs. Separate Property

Marital Property: Assets acquired during the marriage (except for gifts or inheritances).
Separate Property: Assets owned before marriage, gifts, or inheritances.

Only marital property is subject to division during divorce. Accurate identification is crucial.

Valuing Your Assets

Fair division requires accurate valuation of assets including real estate, investments, retirement accounts, and personal property. Professional appraisals may be necessary.

Real Estate Considerations

Real estate is often a significant asset. Options for its fate include:

• Selling and splitting the proceeds.
• One spouse buying out the other’s share.
• Co-owning (has legal and financial implications).

The Legal Process

• Disclosure and Discovery: Both parties must disclose all financial information for transparency.
• Negotiation and Settlement: Many divorces are settled through agreement, which can be less adversarial and costly than court.
• Court Intervention: If no agreement is reached, a judge will consider various factors to make a fair division.
