2. Collectibles and belongings. While often overlooked, your sports memorabilia and coin collection are considered assets. Take a look at anything you have on display in your house. This includes stamps, books, art, and antiques. They could all be considered assets depending on their value.
3. Cemetery plots. Chances are you don’t want to be buried next to your ex now that you are negotiating a divorce. However, those cemetery plots that you bought probably came with a hefty price tag. Because of how valuable they are, they should be considered assets and negotiated in the proceedings as well.
4. Benefits from employers. If you’ve received stock options, retirement accounts, or pension plans from your current or previous employers, they should be included in your list of marital assets. The same is true for your spouse.
5. Memberships. Whether for the country club, gym, or golf course, these memberships are of value and most likely required fees to join. This makes them an asset that should be divided between the two of you.
6. Pets. Even though you may have treated your dogs as children, most states require that pets be treated as property and not family members. They will be considered assets and divided between the two of you.
7. Intellectual property. If the two of you worked together on professional projects, it could be difficult to divide the intellectual property involved. This includes trademarks, patents, copyrights, and royalties. However, an arrangement needs to be made to ensure that both parties receive their part of these.
