Divorce settlements must be approved by the court

Many divorces are resolved out of court, which can be done through mediation, alternative dispute resolution and similar methods. Some individuals don't realize that the court will still have to approve the settlement before it is finalized. One reason for this is that the court needs to determine whether the agreement was negotiated in a fair manner.

Don't let emotions guide your property division settlement

When you're dividing your assets, one of the things you might worry about is that you'll lose something that has sentimental value to you. You're not alone. In fact, many arguments during divorce occur because of people fighting over less-valuable items that have a particular memory attached.
