What factors do courts consider in property division?

29307830_S.jpgDifferent states have different approaches when it comes to splitting up property in divorce.

However, outside of these aspects, from a financial standpoint, also make sure to think about the importance of honesty and the future in terms of retirement.

Many people with a family pet feel there is no price tag that could be put on their pet. That Fido of Fluffy do not have monetary values and are rather considered priceless, just like any other member of the family.
