During the course of the marriage most people obtain many assets and debts together. When a couple goes through a divorce they have to figure out how to split those assets and debts. A lot of times emotions get in the way of what is it that should happen practically. The Kolberg law firm makes a marital spreadsheet for you that lists all of your assets, all of your debts, and shows you different options on how to split them up. Sometimes this is a 50-50 split but other times that’s not appropriate. If one person came into the marriage with many more assets than the other sometimes it isn’t fair to do a 50-50 split especially if it is a short-term marriage. Different judges split up assets and debts differently and it is important to know how your judge views things. Call the Kolberg Law Firm for a more thorough explanation of this, and see if we can help minimize the damage to your net worth.
