Property division a major factor in many Washington divorces

When it comes to divorce, for some couples there is nothing that gets them as fired up as the division of their property. After all, certain pieces of property can have a lot of sentimental value or financial value, and both parties may feel they are entitled to it. Moreover, sometimes couples disagree on how valuable a piece of property is. However, if possible couples should take a step back when it comes to property division, and take a look at the big picture.

In the state of Washington, whether property is classified as "separate" or "community," it is subject to property division in the event of a divorce. The division must be equitable. However, this doesn't always come down to a 50/50 split. Some examples of property that may be subject to division in a divorce include the family home and other pieces of real property, automobiles, boats, equipment, furniture, collections, pieces of art and antiques. In addition, less tangible assets such as businesses, retirement accounts, stock accounts and investments are also subject to division.

Not only are assets divided in a divorce, but liabilities are too. Some examples of liabilities that may be subject to division in a divorce include mortgages, credit card debts and other loans. Again, the division of liabilities is also equitable.
