Deciding how to distribute property during a divorce can be the source of much tension, conflict and difficulty. All of your beloved possessions that have been shared through the years may be difficult to part with and it may be hard to decide who should take which items. This property can include personal items, household goods, real estate, investments, and retirement accounts.

Settling Your Divorce
Community property is anything that was acquired during the marriage. This includes all earnings including items that were purchased with these earnings as well as debt. Separate property includes items like gifts, inheritance that were given to one spouse or items purchased separately. Separate property is generally very easy to distribute, it stays with the spouse who brought it into the marriage. The community property is generally what is up for debate and has the most potential for creating conflict.
