Divorce and Furniture

When financially stable couples marry, often one of the first major purchases they make is buying a house where they will build their life together. Typically, moving into a new house and making it home will involve the additional purchasing of furniture and another décor that couples choose together to inject their own tastes and sensibilities into a property. In the case of divorce, it is natural for each individual to want to keep certain pieces of furniture which they enjoy or regard as particularly special.

It may be impossible for spouses to come to an agreement about the division of furniture or decorative assets, and if this is your situation, it is advisable to speak with an experienced attorney.

  • What pieces each spouse is interested in taking
  • The circumstances of the furniture’s initial purchase
  • Each spouse’s future plans for the furniture
