Protecting assets with sentimental value

When you are going through a divorce, things have the potential to get tense and two people, who once signed on to a life together, can end up enemies. This may be particularly true if you were caught by surprise when served with the divorce papers. In fact, you may not even want the divorce, but realize it is inevitable because your spouse's mind is set.

This is often when things with little to no monetary worth and loads of sentimental value come into play as hot ticket items to contest. If your spouse knows you have a particular affinity for some item you share, perhaps the children's artwork or homemade holiday ornaments, they may suddenly show an interest, and it may be entirely intended to upset you and cause you distress.

This may be because they want to see you feel even a modicum of the hurt and anger they are feeling. Or it may be to get any reaction out of you. And you are probably best to not give them a reaction at all. Instead, inform your attorney when drawing up lists of community property of all items that mean the most to you and that you would like to hold onto and your attorney may be able to negotiate some items of greater monetary value and minimal personal value in an effort to retain those sentimental items.

The Law Offices of Victoria S. Linder, PC, work with you, always listening and clarifying and reiterating what is of the greatest value in order to protect your wants as well as your needs in a divorce. Whether you are filing for a divorce or you are taken by surprise being served with one, the attorneys for Victoria S. Linder, PC, will be by your side advocating for you.
