The New Zealand Herald News has recently reported on the growing trend of 'divorce parties' amongst divorcees, wishing to rid themselves of unwanted items kept by them as part of their divorce settlement. The paper interviewed a businesswoman whose company is specifically dedicated to organising such events. The items can range from clothes to handbags to pieces of furniture.
As part of reaching a financial agreement on divorce, you will need to consider with your family law solicitor, how you wish to deal with personal possessions and the contents of the family home. Once the division of your goods and chattels has been agreed and implemented, you are free to do with them as you choose. You may actually prefer to get rid of some of this baggage of your married life, psychologically moving on.
