Divorce and Property

Divorce not only terminates the legal partnership between two spouses, but can also require that the property previously shared by the couple be divided. While property owned by either spouse prior to the marriage can remain the property of the original owner, most things acquired after the wedding (community or marital property) and before separation are often subject to division upon divorce. This section includes resources to help those going through a divorce determine how property should be divided, what happens to shared debts, how to find hidden assets, what happens to the family home, the effect on insurance policies, and more. A marital property division checklist and a sample property settlement agreement form also are included.
