One of the biggest issues in divorce is money and property and understandably so, as people split up they have to start thinking about how they are going to make it on their own. While everyone characterizes property division as a vindictive process of “taking every penny” or something along those lines, the reality is much different, both in purpose and outcome. While people may start out looking for revenge or to “stick it” to their ex, after a couple months of living on their own they realize their need for a stable income and their stuff.
What to Expect at Mediation
When it comes to mediation one of the scenarios that lends itself best to reaching a settlement is when the parties are only fighting over property and finances. That being said reaching a settlement is never easy and the parties should normally not expect to just be in and out at the mediation. The baseline for what a person should expect when going into mediation, in regards to property division, is that the marital estate will more or less be split in half and given 50% to each party. This doesn’t necessarily mean that everything must be sold but that is often an important option, especially when it comes to real estate.
