    Default Wow. Bummer.

    If you use either in your job (or business) they would be exempt from her clutches. If they are not, then START a business to utilize them. For the cost of a few business cards, you could show the court you need them in your fledgling company. IMNSHO.

    Best of luck to you. I have been there.

    Best advice I could give you is, if you truely love your wife, and especially if there are children involved, try to work out your differences. Going to counseling may open both of your eyes to things that you really don't see. But if things have crossed over that line and divorce is certain to happen, then have anything that she has aquired since being married appraised and taken into consideration for a trade off. Jewerly, cameras, birthday and Christmas presents, and anything that means something to her that was purchased during the marriage is joint marital assets. Been there, Done that. They will fight dirty especially if there are lawyers and family members now involved. Don't listen to whatever she says will happen or what her lawyers says will happen. The final decision will either be between you and her or the judge. Good luck

    Let’s clarify this a bit. You could sell it to a good friend that will help you out. And later you can get it back after she’s gone (A GOOD FRIEND)...

    What he said.......unless the laws in your state allow her to get half of market value....if so then good luck......best bet is talk to all the best lawyers in town....that way they can't represent her....conflict of interest....doesn't work every were,but may in your state...

    Do what fabtech said. I did it with a gun collection several years ago. Worked like a charm.

    Default sell it too a friend...

    Unfortunately, the way most states view this now is that once she has stated her desire for the divorce assets are essentually frozen. You could sell them to a friend for 10 cents on the dollar...heck even a nickel but if market value is 40 cents on the dollar you will be held liable for half of the market value if you are in a joint property state. and most are...

    Using the start a business approach would most likely not work since that would be seen as sheilding assets. Your best hope is that you need them for work and can justify them that way.

    Or as was said...make a list of everything that is of value to her and start the bartering..

    It was also said to get the best lawyer in town...AMEN to that and do it quick. If she has already lawyered up you do not wnat those bloodsucking..@@#&&!!!&&!!'s to have the opportunity to start pounding on you. You need that buffer zone to protect your interest ond not let them bully you.

    That all said..good luck man...been through it all....that ard part is to not let yourself get screwed yet maintain some civility for the kids and such.

    Just my two pennies and hope it helps.

    Welder One, I know what your going through. Like Fab said, sell it to a good friend and get something signed saying he sells it back to you at same price, give that paper to a better friend for safe keeping.

    If there is a house involved, (I did this) contact an appraiser, tell him the story, point out any little fault or repair that needs done, get him to work in your favor, it will pay off. I was able to p o her lawyer by doing this, loved every minute of it.
