Besides children, the most difficult part of a divorce is splitting the stuff. What was once the wonderful “ours” has now become the combative “mine.” Needless to say this has spawned many drawn out divorces and made many a lawyer some extra dollars.
You see, while most states have clear laws dividing property, there is always wiggle room. Like in Texas, where the law says that all marital property is split 50/50, but with the wiggle room that a judge can award more to one spouse on fairness grounds.
How do you figure these things out?
