When your marriage is ending, you have to divide the property that you amassed during the union. This is a complex undertaking, especially if you have many high-value assets. Taking things slowly can help you to make sure that you are making the decisions that will be best for you. We know that it can be difficult to sort all this out, but you shouldn’t let yourself become overwhelmed.
Often, couples who are divorcing start out splitting up the major assets first since these are often the most contentious. Just remember that higher value doesn’t necessarily mean that retaining these assets are in your best interests. In many cases, expensive assets come with high upkeep costs that can strain your budget when you are living off only your own income.
Once the bigger assets are divided, you can start splitting the smaller ones. These can be used to balance out the agreement. After this will come the debts, which can also be used to balance the asset-division process. This might not be easy to work out, but we will be by your side to help you work through it.
As you go through this process, keeping your post-divorce budget in mind is absolutely essential. It’s pointless to waste time and money fighting for assets you can’t afford to maintain. Small costs add up quickly, so if you don’t know what you can afford, you might end up with a settlement that is putting a lot of stress on your bank account. Avoiding this can help you to have less stress as you adjust to single life.
