Hello, My name is David Badanes, thank you for joining me. I concentrate in Matrimonial and Family Law with offices in Northport and Garden City. Today, I am going to answer the following Question: Is it a good idea to take a video of my personal property?
When you are first served with divorce papers or you are the one filing for divorce, it is a good practice to take a video or photographs of all your personal property. This way you have hard evidence of what personal property you have and its condition.
In many divorces, one spouse will improperly take a valuable piece of personal property, yet, without the video or photographs it may be hard to prove that it is missing or exactly what condition the property was in.
