Basically in a divorce you can do whatever you like with the assets --- as long as both sides agree.
In a disputed divorce what you end up with depends on the strengths of your legal adviser.
Legal advisers get paid by the amount of work/time they spend on the case, it is therefore in their interest to complicate matters and to propagate mutual dislike.
No matter how much each side of a divorce hate each other, it is their financial interest to agree these financial matters without litigation, even get a mutual trusted friend to arbitrate. Come to a resolution and put this to the divorce court for finalisation.
In all disputed cases it is the legal profession that will make most gains.
Some might even consider that walking away from a bad marriage with nothing results in a far better quality of life than extended litigation which is guaranteed to leave both parties scarred and bitter.
