The division of marital property is one of the most complex and crucial aspects of any divorce.

What Happens To Property After A Divorce?
The general rule of thumb is that all property will be divided between the parties at the time of divorce. Meaning that titles for real property, vehicles, etc. will be transferred and the debts associated with those items will be paid or refinanced so as to remove the name of the party not receiving the item. Courts generally do not like for parties to continue with joint ownership following the divorce, but on occasion, there may be a situation such as a business, real property, or other asset, which the court finds necessary to postpone for division. This rarely occurs, but can happen. As for smaller items, such as furniture, bikes, etc., the courts really encourage parties to divide these items amongst themselves as they hate to divide “pots and pans.” Personal items such as clothing should remain with the respective party. Depending on the facts of your situation consultation with an attorney knowledgeable about divorce is advised.
