If both parties are talking, then they may wish to discuss the terms of their divorce prior to beginning the process. Terms generally cover child custody, child support, alimony, equitable distribution of property such as the marital residence, vacation homes, retirement accounts such as IRAs, 401ks, pensions, cars, and any debt associated with the marriage.
Often parties are confused about whether or not an asset or a debt has to be in the name of one or the other party for it be considred marital in nature. Generally, if an asset is acquired using marital income or income derived during the marriage, then it is marital. If debt is acquired during the marriage for marital purposes, then it is marital, neither would require that it be in the name of both parties. Premarital funds that are comingled with marital assets put at issue whether or not or how much of an asset is a marital one. These cases may be very fact specific and must be analyzed on a case by case basis.
Again, if you have an amicable, uncontested divorce, please call Green & Associates to save yourself time and money in the process of divorce.
