The decision to end a marriage is never an easy one. It can take months or sometimes years to come to the realization that the two of you may be better off separating than staying together. Divorce is fairly common in our society and is commonly regarded as one of the most stressful and emotional times in life. One important aspect of a divorce settlement is determining a fair and equitable division of property. The law firm of Kallemeyn & Kallemeyn can help you and your divorcing spouse navigate property division as well as the other important issues such as child custody and child support. Our team understands how difficult this time is and will use our legal knowledge and experience to find the best possible solution for you and your family.
Settle the Terms of Your Divorce
In most cases in the state of Minnesota, property is divided equitably between the two spouses. This includes your home(s), cars, furniture, rugs, artwork, collectables, jewelry, clothing as well as all financial and business assets. In cases like this, all of the marital property can be divided equally in any number of ways, depending on the preferences of both parties. One strategy is to make a list of all assets and their estimated value and prioritize what each of you would like to keep, adding up the values and then comparing the total values at the end of the process.
Property division can become more complicated if a prenuptial agreement was signed before the marriage began, or if you or your soon to be ex-spouse came into the marriage with property. In many cases, a family law attorney can help you come to agreement about the division of property, often without even going to court. Settling the terms of a divorce does not automatically translate to a lengthy and costly court battle.
