If you and your spouse are considering filing for divorce, it is important to keep in mind how to best handle family issues related to the divorce. For example, property division, child custody, spousal support, and child support, are all legal matters that may need to be resolved during or after a divorce.
In regards to property division, it can be helpful to make a list of all of your and your spouse’s jointly and separately owned property, including both assets and debts. Not only can this help you understand how things like property division and spousal support could be determined, it can help you know what your individual finances will look like after the divorce.
Also, some recommend using a video camera to walk around you and your spouse’s home and and record all of the belongings in the house. In doing this, you will have clear and reliable documentation of property to be divided.
