What will happen to a couple's home after they divorce?

Property division can be a frustrating topic for couples to discuss when they are getting a divorce. Not only can people disagree on what property should be divided, but they may also disagree on who should get that property. One piece of property that couples may have difficulty agreeing overĀ is their home.

It can be exciting for a couple to purchase their first home together, but when it comes time for them to divorce, this purchase can cause them a lot of stress. If one or both spouses feels as though they should get the house in the divorce, the courts will help them decide by looking at a few factors. One of which will be if the couple have children or not. If there are children in the picture, the parent who cares for them the most will likely be awarded the home. If there are no children, spouses may have to sell the home and divide whatever money they make from the sale.

When discussing property division, it can go either way for couples. Some can agree to take what they are given and walk away pleased with what has been decided, but others will choose to engage in heated disputes and argue until the decision is left up to a judge. Often, people may want to avoid having to speak to a judge about their divorce legal matters, so they will decide to work together to find a solution that all are happy with.

Couples who are divorcing that have property to divide should contact an attorney. Depending on when the property was purchased and with what funds, both spouses may be entitled to a percentage. If there is any confusion, an attorney can help clear things up and get you the property your deserve.
