How Do I Value Property in a Divorce?

How you value your property depends on the type of property you have and the nature of your marriage. For example, if you and your spouse both contributed equally to the purchase of a house, the judge will likely value the house equally as well. However, if you and your spouse both contributed equally to the purchase of a house, but your spouse made significantly more income than you, the judge will value the house based on your spouse's income and earning potential.
