Divorce: Division of marital assets not the only matter to tackle

Starting over and severing old ties in a divorce is typically an emotional experience for couples nationwide. It is no different in Alaska, and realizing that marriage revolves around love, and divorce is all about money and future financial stability, will present many with potential stumbling blocks. In addition to the division of marital assets, there are some fundamental matters to consider before filing for divorce rather than dealing with the consequences afterward.

Can division of marital assets be done without emotion?

Divorces in Alaska -- as elsewhere -- are typically challenging for both spouses and their children. The standard advice offered to couples in divorces is to leave emotions outside the door when divorce settlements are discussed. Unfortunately, although it is often valuable advice, it is easier said than done. It is not uncommon for one of the spouses to agree to just about anything during discussions about the division of marital assets and child custody because they just want to get it over. This attitude often brings about regret later, when newly-divorced persons realize how different life could have been had they been less emotional.
