Welcome to BlissDivorce! Throughout the various parts of your divorce journey, Bliss will ask you to propose divisions of assets, debts, obligations, and even your taxes. Here’s what to expect, and how to make the most of our modules and our mediators.
Your spouse will not see the divisions you propose.
The divisions you propose along the way will all go directly to your mediator. Your spouse won’t see them. However, you should be thoughtful about what you propose. These proposals will become the foundation your mediator uses to build a fair divorce agreement.
Divisions that your spouse will accept.
The work ahead of you is to divide your household and everything that belongs to it fairly and equitably.
Anything that was yours before the marriage is generally yours after it. Some things are governed by special agreements (like a prenuptial). Everything else is considered “community property” and belongs equally to both you and your spouse. Generally, a 50-50 split will be most fair.
However, every marriage, and every divorce, is unique. The most important thing is to propose divisions that make sense and are fair to both you and your spouse. You and your spouse may not see eye to eye on every issue, but you might be surprised by how much you agree on.

Your mediator will help with the difficult parts.
Once the mediator receives all of your proposed divisions, they will be able to focus on the things you and your spouse are having trouble reaching agreement on.
