What are some examples of personal property?

If you are getting ready to divorce your spouse, you may have a wide variety of concerns. For example, you could have anxiety over how divorce will affect your children and your ability to spend time with them. That said, property division can be particularly complicated and it is essential for you to realize how your property may be split up. In Salt Lake City, and in communities around Utah, it is important to understand how different types of marital property, such as personal property, are subject to division.

According to the Utah Courts, there are a number of different examples of personal property. Some include furniture, vehicles, work tools, boats and jewelry. Typically, this property will be moveable (as opposed to real property) and if a couple has more than one of a certain item, it will be split up between them. Personal property is usually viewed as marital property and subject to distribution when a couple files for divorce. Personal property with legal titles in one person's name, such as vehicles, are usually still considered marital property.

If you are stressed out about losing your property or being unable to receive property, familiarizing yourself with laws related to property division is vital. Divorce can be tricky, but being ready to handle certain matters such as property division can make a world of difference.
