You likely have a full life with a job, children and more responsibilities than you can count. Essentially, almost every minute of your day is already filled, and now you are having to contend with a divorce. As such, you are taking on all of your obligations with additional emotional and time-consuming issues that come with ending a marriage.
Trying to deal with everything that's currently on your plate is going to be a challenge for sure. But the fact is that you need to place special focus on your divorce. And it is particularly important to dedicate attention to your property settlement negotiations.
You see, regardless of your circumstances, the assets that you receive in your settlement will form the backbone of your finances as you begin your new life. And to this end, it is vital to make sure that all of the marital property is part of your and your spouse's discovery documents.
There are a couple of reasons that it can take time to get an accurate inventory of marital assets. First, some items such as a house, artwork, collectibles and other property will likely need appraisals to assess their value. Also, sometimes a spouse may attempt to hide assets, and it takes the aid of forensic accounting and other such tools to bring them to the surface.
Of course, you are not a professional appraiser or a hunter of hidden assets. But these are services that can be provided by an experienced family law attorney.
