Dividing your property: How should you proceed?

During your divorce, you may not be sure about how you want to divide your property. Maine does not have community property laws, which means that you can divide your assets equitably. Equitable is not equal, so you'll want to show why you deserve the assets that you're seeking.

You can divorce without an attorney, but here's why you shouldn't

Divorces go through a similar process in most states, but each state has its own requirements to begin a divorce. In Maine, you or your spouse will have to have been a resident for at least six months or have been married in Maine to seek a divorce there. You may also be able to divorce in Maine if you were living there when the cause for your divorce took place.
