You never imagined you would face losing the house you and your spouse worked so hard for and made into a home where you raised your children and celebrated family traditions. Now, your spouse wants it and you are scared that your house might have to be sold.
During the divorce, you will have to decide whether you or your spouse will take ownership of everything from the bathroom towels to the stock portfolios. Suddenly you find yourself having a strong attachment to the lamp in the living room and the holiday ornaments in the garage. Why do the cookie jars now have such a sentimental value?
It is best for you and your spouse to come to a resolution regarding the division of personal and household items. Work with the Law Offices of Lisa P. Kirby to determine whether property such as a family business or real estate should be valued by an expert. There are many factors to consider when deciding whether to keep property, give it your spouse, or having it sold. The Law Offices of Lisa P. Kirby can help you evaluate your decisions. If you and your spouse can amicably and respectfully speak to each other, an option may be to start with items that can be easily divided to avoid paying attorney fees to divide items that may be worth less than paying an attorney to help divide. Like all aspects of your divorce, the Law Offices of Lisa P. Kirby will help you consider all of the options carefully.
