Q: My ex wife and I split May 2018, in the divorce the assets didn’t get split. Is the value what it was then or now?

She has had the house and use of everything. Some things she says no longer work. Washer, fridge, computer. Do I get any value for those items? Also do I get to say she used items and they have depreciated?

A: You need a divorce attorney to file:

1) Descriptive List,

2) Motion for exclusive use or rental value,

3) Motion to Set partition for trial.

You need to write a list of:

a) Every item within the home that was worth more than $100 when you left (i.e. include washer and dryer, omit toaster and blender), real estate,vehicles, boats, motor cycles, ATVs, retirements, pensions or 401k's, vacant lots, rental property, bank accounts, investments, whole life policies &

b) Every debt incurred while you were married (i.e. credit cards, personal loans, school loans, car liens, mortgage, lines of credit.

Give these 2 lists to your attorney.
