What Happens to the House?

For most couples, their home forms their biggest single investment. It also serves as the embodiment of their hopes and aspirations, providing a sense of security and well-being. In many cases, the house can provide these benefits for one spouse, even after a divorce — provided that such an arrangement can be made to work financially.

At my firm, Daniel R. Bacalis, P.C., Attorney at Law, I help my clients achieve fair property settlements, including the resolution of home ownership issues. I am creative in my approach, and I work hard to help my clients achieve satisfactory outcomes.

Creative Property Division Solutions

Deciding who gets the house or if one of the spouses has sufficient income to even keep are key issues. A turbulent real estate market has put pressure on home values, complicating this important issue. To answer these and other questions, I will carefully review your financial situation and that of your spouse, as well as your preferences regarding the disposition of your home.

What happens to the house? There is no one-size-fits-all answer. It may make sense to sell the house or even let it go into foreclosure. On the other hand, you may be better off filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy, which can enable you to avoid foreclosure. There may be a combined property division and alimony solution that enables you or your spouse to keep the home. I will explain these possibilities and others, providing you with the information you need to make wise decisions about your home.
