    Usually you mail the original and a copy to the Judges attention,but some courts handle it a bit differently,so I suggest you call the Judge's secretary to make sure.

    In a divorce,all assets are considered by the Judge,but are divided pursuant to a number of factors in the law,length of marriage being a very important one.We are not a 50/50 state per se,so the entirety of all circumstances must be taken into account.
