How to Split your House up After a Divorce

There will be less trouble if you can agree with your spouse on splitting up the property. However, if you cannot agree with each other, then you should consider searching for ‘divorce lawyers near me.’ If you both want to deal with each other in a civil way and avoid court, then here are some pointers that could be helpful for you:

  1. Find some hel: Most of the people that are going through a divorce process will choose to employ a “family mediator” if they can’t reach an agreement with their partners. A family mediator is a professional who helps people with family issues by finding a way to plan for the future and agree on what would be the best strategy for the family’s situation. If the family mediator isn’t helping the family, and the couples have decided to divorce, they may need to search for divorce attorneys near me’ and find somebody who can give them advice on the divorce procedures.

  2. Use divorce calculators: A divorce calculator could help a lot throughout the process. There are also many effective divorce and money calculators available online which will help you to get a sense of your financial situation before you agree on a divorce settlement. These calculators are helpful for determining what financial situation you are in and what kind of alimony you may have to payout.

  3. Make a list: If you’ve decided to approach this challenge, you should start documenting the ownership of each item in the house. It’s often sufficient to describe items collectively, such as “Makeup kit” or “Toolbox”. Then you’ll need to separate from this list any item you regard as separate property, which generally are items that you brought into the marriage and items you received as gifts during the marriage. Next, you can go through the list and identify the items you’d like. The last step is to sort it into four categories – yours, theirs, both and not wanted.

However, if there are certain items that you and your partner both want, it will cause hassle. In general, these items have monetary or sentimental value, so it’s hard to determine the ownership of these items. If you have to dispute only these items with a divorce attorney or in court, you might end up spending more for the court fees. Therefore, you need to take this into consideration before you take any legal action.

Here is how self-storage comes into play

If you can’t reach an agreement, you could rent a self-storage unit to store your items until you’ve settled everything. Or, if you need to move to your new home within the city, you can also use our moving services. Either situation, Boxie24 will always be there for you.
