When a marriage ends, the decisions to split property is one that must occur. How can years’ worth of assets and debts be split fairly, though? This is something the court can do. However, when possible, it is often best for the two parties to come together to make decisions that best represent their needs and their goals. In some situations, you may be able to secure the assets you desire, but this all comes down to negotiation as well as meeting the court’s goals for your case.

It Is About the Future
When the court determines the best way to split property after a divorce, it aims to split it fairly (based on the circumstances of the case), but also with the goal of providing each party with the best ability to move forward with a sound financial future. Many aspects play a role in this including if there is child support and the earning capabilities of each party. Decisions about the following tend to come to light:
- Homes and other large assets
- Retirement and pension accounts
- Marital property – items purchased by both during the marriage
- Debt obligations
- Investment divisions
