Former couple finally settle substantial marital property

Trying to reach an agreement over who gets what during your divorce can be difficult at best. Some people have very definite ideas about what is theirs, or what they want from a settlement, but unfortunately this is not always in keeping with the wishes of their spouse. For Connecticut couples with substantial assets, the matter of property division can become even more complicated. The more there is to split, the more these couples are willing to pay in the fight for their fair share.

It does not always have to be a battle, however, and some couples can reach an amicable decision about who gets what. Others have prenuptial agreements to aid the process. For others, it is a slightly rockier road, but that does not mean that it can't end well for both parties. Such was the case for a well-known power couple whose initially difficult divorce has suddenly come to a calm conclusion.

The pair, well-known in the political word as well as the art world, share a substantial art collection which had been at the center of their dispute. Also contested were their numerous properties. However, they now intend to remain friends as their divorce proceedings finally come to a close. As for the art collection, they have stated their intent to carry on making donations from it.

This happy ending is just as attainable for many couples in Connecticut. However daunting the divorce process may seem, particularly if you sense that you will clash with your spouse, you do not need to face it alone. An attorney can help you through any disagreements and aid you in pursuing a fair settlement and the fresh start you deserve, however great or small your assets.
