One of the most common sources of tension during a Wheat Ridge or Arvada divorce is splitting property and assets. Often, this includes personal property - things one party feels they should be able to keep in the family home while the other party may feel it's their right to take it. If one party leave the residence, it often becomes difficult for them to then take anything they left behind. While these items are usually relatively inexpensive - they can sometimes be the reason for major delays in the divorce proceedings, which will likely cost you money. Let's look at some ways to address the retrieval of personal items, without making it a contentious issue.
An important part of any Wheat Ridge, Arvada, and Golden divorce is property division. Outside of issues regarding children, it can be the most contentious matter in a Jefferson County dissolution of marriage. Part of dividing assets is valuing the property. Because of this, it's important to understand the property valuations. While you have sentimental attachments that add value to your items, that doesn't mean that they actually hold the value you think. It can be extremely difficult for both parties to be objective about property valuations because most things will have some sort of personal attachment, blurring your ideas about what is an appropriate valuation.
Aside from matters regarding children (like child custody), property division can be one of the more contentious issues related to a Wheat Ridge, Arvada, or Littleton divorce. If the two parties cannot come to an agreement about who gets the home, then it will be up to a Jefferson County Court judge to make that determination. It is important you do everything you can to protect your interests in your divorce case.
