Extended Physical Separation

It is not unusual in my experience for couples to be physically separated for a number of months or years before they begin the steps of reaching a legal Separation Agreement.  Usually these couples who no longer live together have managed to find a way to share the care and supervision of their children, and pay for ongoing expenses in both residences.

For any variety of reasons, eventually it is important to one or both of them to be legally separated, and divorced. These circumstances of extended physical separation can generate unique issues concerning the date of identification and valuation of marital assets and debts. As in all mediations about the equitable distribution of marital assets and debts, the couple will be discussing and deciding upon the dates for identifying and valuing assets and debts that will be distributed between them.
