Yes, you can be forced to sell items and even property like homes and vehicles if you are unable to come to a decision about how to distribute your marital property.
Judges strongly prefer that divorcing couples handle these issues on their own, but if the parties can’t negotiate effectively, a liquidation sale can be ordered.
In that case, you’ll watch your possessions go, often at well below market value, and then divide the profits.
Some couples are simply past the point with each other where they can work together to achieve a positive outcome, and that’s where experienced attorneys can help.
While we are vigorous advocates for our client, we can also see the bigger picture that may be lost in the minutia of their day to day experience of the divorce.
Sometimes being willing to let go of one item can get you a lot more in the long run.
At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we protect our clients by helping them understand the full impact of a given decision.
Some things are absolutely worth fighting for, but in a divorce, it’s important to keep your overall goals in mind.
