Many people getting a divorce focus a great deal of energy on figuring out how to divide their assets, even in divorces that involve high net worth assets.

Property division is often a challenge in divorce cases, but it can be especially difficult when one or both of the divorcing spouses is an artist. Determining the value -- and potential value -- of art produced during the marriage can be a fraught topic for people who have never before had to look at their work as "property," and especially not as the property of a spouse.

Splitting the house in a divorce

When a couple divorces in Connecticut, the process of dividing marital property can become tricky. One of the hardest assets to agree on is the family home. While the most simple solution is to sell the property and split the equity, this may not be an option if one party wants to remain in the home. The spouse who is remaining in the home will want to have a free and clear claim to it moving forward, and the partner who moves out will want to ensure that his or her name is completely removed from this asset in the event that there are future losses or problems.

The marital home and property division in a divorce

Although Connecticut uses the principle of equitable distribution to address marital assets during a divorce, the issue of the family home may be decided based on important factors in the relationship. Children are an important consideration if the court is to decide who keeps a home. Issues such as domestic abuse may also play a role. In some cases, a couple may arrive at a plan for dealing with the home without a judge's involvement. In other instances, the court may have the final say in the matter.
