What is property?

This may sound like a strange question, but in the context of divorce it really is not. "Property," for the purposes of divorce, could be thought of as anything that a couple might own. Obvious things such as houses, automobiles, jewelry, clothes, and bank accounts spring to mind, but "property" also covers much more. You might think property is something with value, but in fact even things that you might think have "no value" can be thought of property. For example: debt (loans, credit cards) goodwill, business name, professional degree or license, trade mark, copyright etc.
