Property division negotiations may be more challenging for women

You deserve to receive your fair share of the marital assets. But dividing property can be an arduous and even contentious process. And unfortunately, if a study is correct, being a woman may put you at a disadvantage. According to two Ph.Ds at the University of Pennsylvania, women negotiate in a manner that is distinctly different from that of men.

The Ph.Ds found that women tend to focus on their personal relationships. This means they have greater concerns about their relationships with their former partners. On the other hand, men take a more goal-oriented approach. So when it’s time to negotiate a property settlement, women may be less likely to pursue monetary benefits than men.

As much as you may want to avoid a conflict with your ex, it is still vital for your future that you get your fair share of the settlement. Fortunately, you do not have to carry the full weight of negotiations yourself. By having an experienced divorce attorney as your legal representative, you have an advocate who can act on your behalf in an effort to help you secure everything to which you are entitled.
