Legal Solutions That Address Your Emotional And Financial Struggles

Who will get the house in a divorce?

Going through the divorce process will bring a variety of challenges to your life. While you may feel bogged down, it's good to remember one thing: There is an answer to every problem you face.

There are many questions to answer, with this one among the most important: Who will get the house?

This doesn't always come into play, but it's something that you may have to address as the divorce process moves forward.

There is no easy answer to this question, as it depends on a variety of details.

For example, if you have a child with the other parent, the person with physical custody is more likely to keep the marital home. This can go a long way in maintaining stability for the child.

In the event that one person purchased the home with separate funds before tying the knot, that person is in position to retain rights to the property after the divorce.

What if you can't agree?

If you have no children and own the house jointly with the other person, the court will have to make a decision based on a variety of rules in your state.

It's often easiest to simply sell the house and split the proceeds. This way, you don't have to fight over who stays and who goes. Instead, whatever profit comes from the sale is split by both individuals.

Matters of property division can be a challenge to deal with during the divorce process. Even so, it's something that you have to tackle as soon as possible.

There is no easy way of knowing who gets the house in a divorce, so you should be prepared for anything that could happen as the days go by. When you know what to expect from the property division process, you put yourself in better position to receive the assets that you deserve.
