Yes, if you and your spouse can’t agree on the disposition of assets in your divorce, the judge can order that a liquidation sale be held, then apportion the proceeds between you.
It isn’t a pretty way to handle asset distribution, and most couples are better off avoiding this outcome if they can.
Doing so requires a willingness to negotiate, an openness to compromise, and flexibility from both parties.
Obviously, by the time many couples get to divorce court, their feelings have hardened and their antipathy is almost impossible to overcome.
Sometimes the best choice you can make is to work with – and be open to the best advice from – an experienced Queens divorce attorney.
People who work in the divorce profession have a valuable perspective and can help you understand what’s possible in your situation, as well as the downsides of a given approach.
At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we help clients get fair, negotiated settlements even when the parties seem beyond talking.
