Don't forget these important assets

If you are facing divorce and don't have children, chances are the most troublesome aspect in the proceedings has been the division of property. After all, you worked your whole adult life for what you have, letting go of it seems so wrong. Well, while some people are hung up with who gets what table, sofa or television, there is a whole realm of items being overlooked. Here are some commonly overlooked assets that should be considered during your divorce.

If you and your spouse spent much of your time collecting certain items or antiques, don't forget that as your collection grew, so did its value. If you are both unwilling to let it go, get it appraised. You may be surprised to find out what it's worth, and it may actually be a really great bargaining chip.

When couples go in together on club memberships, they often times just separate the account and begin paying for them individually. However, many clubs have heavy fees and annual dues, which could represent an asset to be divided.

Personal loans are also commonly overlooked. If you or your spouse loaned a family member a substantial amount of money, the payback amount is marital property and therefore due to you both.

While the complexity of your property division may vary, it is always a good idea to seek the help of a trusted divorce attorney whenever there is a question of dividing marital property. You certainly don't want to leave something on the table that out-values everything you remembered to fight for. With the help of an attorney, you can be sure nothing gets left behind.
