Sharing Rule:

When no prenuptial agreement exists, each of the parties gets 50% of the assets (this includes 50% of the debts). Included are the assets that are commonly owned at the time of the divorce. If a party has strong emotional ties with certain goods (heirlooms etc.) she or he can keep the good but has to compensate 50% of the value to the other party. The value of all assets is determined on the moment of the actual dividing.


 


Explanation:

When no prenuptial agreement exists, each of the parties gets 50% of the assets (this includes 50% of the debts). Included are the assets that are commonly owned at the time of the divorce. If a party has strong emotional ties with certain goods (heirlooms etc.) she or he can keep the good but has to compensate 50% of the value to the other party. The value of all assets is determined on the moment of the actual dividing.

Division can take place by making a list of all assets and their value. Value can be determined by looking up reasonable market prices on the internet or from other sources. Each of the parties in private writes down what she or he would like to have. Next, these lists can then be compared. The items both parties want can be either divided by chance, or by picking in turns. At the end, the value of assets of both parties is determined and the difference is paid.
