One of the most important aspects of a divorce is determining who gets what. If you and your spouse accumulated property or other assets over the years, it’s crucial that you calculate the value of everything and determine what you’ll keep and what you’ll get rid of.
Why is it important to understand assets?
Most people think all assets are created equal, but that isn’t the case. Just because you own multiple homes or vehicles, doesn’t mean you’re financially set for the foreseeable future.
Which assets grow?
Assets that grow include:
- Retirement accounts
- Dividend-paying stocks
- Interest-paying bonds
Which assets require upkeep?
Physical assets require upkeep. These include personal residences, rental properties, automobiles, electronics, and livestock.
