The division of property will determine both the dollar value of the assets you receive from the divorce, as well as the specific items of personal and real property you retain. The dollar value of property you receive is critical to your ability to financially move forward from the divorce. You will also want to receive assets that leave you financially capable of providing for your children and enjoying vacations and other recreational activities. You may also have particular items of property that are meaningful to you that you want to retain following the divorce. All of these issues must be clearly addressed in the division of property. The division of property involves many complex valuation and tax issues. If you have substantial assets, or if you own a business or other income generating assets that involve complex valuation issues, you should contact an experienced family law attorney.
