Divorce - Assets
ARGUING OVER THE GOODS
Generally people fall into 3 groups:
1. THE GOOD
He/she can have everything.
These people have either moved on emotionally or they simply don't care about the T.V, often they are not even in the position to replace what they leave behind. There are lots of storage companies up and down the country making money out of storing their personal possessions, which their ex spouse's have off-loaded in exasperation. Lots of friends and families' lofts perform the same function.
2. THE BAD
Everything must be divided equally, including the china and the matching sofas, neither party ends up with a complete set of anything and old photograph albums can cause a huge source of debate.
These people are either driven by an innate sense of fairness (their own), are mean, or have no money to replace what they need.
3. THE DOWNRIGHT UGLY
Everything can burn before he/she can have anything.
These people have either not moved on emotionally or are basically nasty. If you do manage to get your graduation photo back it will be cut up into tiny pieces, the last page will be missing from all those novels you intended to read one day and a dead fish will be inserted in the glove compartment of your car.
If your marriage is rocky, or you are having an affair which your spouse has yet to find out about, it is worth keeping hold of your passport, driving licence and all credit cards.
