How to divide property
My thanks to the Family Law Prof Blog for bringing my attention to an excellent new way of dividing property between divorcing spouses. As part of their settlement agreement, actress Kate Walsh (above) and her ex-husband agreed: "One-half of the community property furniture and artwork to be divided by alternating picks after the flip of a coin to determine who will pick first." Sounds very civilised to me.
The agreement, in PDF form, can be found here.
