How in tarnation do I fill this out about household furnishing appliances and furniture ?. Do I have to put how much each is worth? Is it better to low ball( give a lower reasonable estimate than a higher one) if I am gonna try and remain in the house?
He took all the financial records with him so I can't fill out last years tax refund, account balances. Anyone have any experience with this form. I mean he's got the financial papers so I can't fill it out the exact finances.
Do you have to list everything you own together --kayaks, teloscope, binoculars cameras or just the big stuff?

I would try to be honest, while low-balling. I'd include anything either of you might want to fight over, anything of value.

Could you contact your bank/s and creditors to get the balances? This will be marital assets and debts that will be divided, and you don't want to get lowballed there. It's also a good idea to know these numbers now so that you know there was, say, $3K in the account at XBank -- and later, if there's only $200, he can't say that was the balance all along.
Lawyers rule the U.S.; I am not one of them.

I was told by my lawyer to list everything and put down what I would expect to pay for it at a garage sale. My stbx has not said anything to the contrary. Yet.
