Remember that when property is divided by the court it is suppose to be fair, not necessarily equal. It is best for divorcing couples to divide up the property themselves. Start by listing the belongings and value the property. Agree on the value of anything that is not valued more than $100. Remember that used furniture is not worth how much you paid for it unless it is an antique. Some things may make sense to go to one spouse instead of the other spouse. Start with the larger items and go down. If you get stuck, flip a coin. Also, you can agree to sell it.
