If you liked this show, you should follow Conversations About Divorce.

Dividing up your household items in divorce can be contentious, plain awkward and anything in between. In most situations, attorneys will tell you that it isn't worth fighting over this and even if the legal folk tell you to value everything at what you could sell it for on CraigsList, it doesn't mean deciding who gets what is easy.

These Conversations are riddled with emotions and hidden meanings. Quite aside from concerns about equity, some items are just plain difficult to let go. And what you don't take, you may have to replace which adds to the expense of splitting up.

One reason this is so challenging is that like so much else to do with divorce, we just don't know how to do it. There are now however companies and services that can help make this task much easier. 

Joining Mandy today is David MacMahan, founder of Fairsplit. Listen in as MacMahan shares his personal and professional advice on how you can minimize the conflict and get this done. During the show, MacMahan references some free spreadsheets available from FairSplit that you can use to help you. Those are available here.
