Figuring out how to divide up the property in your marital home can be one of the trickiest parts of a divorce.
From furniture to small appliances, household goods can have financial or sentimental value, and figuring out even seemingly simple things like whether to keep a matching pair of lamps together can lead to unpredictable levels of conflict during a divorce.
The downside to taking issues like this to a judge is that your property will often end up disposed of at auction, with the proceeds split between the parties, who end up with almost nothing from the sale, and the property gone as well.
If there is a way to come to an agreement without the judge’s involvement, you’re both likely to be much happier with the outcome.
At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, our team of experienced Brooklyn divorce attorneys can help you and your spouse negotiate acceptable compromises that leave you with as much property as possible from your marital home.
