Selling the Marital Home after Divorce

Once you determine the home to be a marital asset, you need to decide what to do with it. In most cases, the parties chose to sell it. So, what's next?

If you and your spouse own a marital home, you need to consider how to divide the interest in the home after a divorce is initiated. You and your spouse can reach an agreement as to how the interest in the home, if any, will be divided. If you and your spouse cannot reach an agreement, the Court will decide what to do with the home. In most cases, the Court will order the home to be sold.

Taking that into consideration, it is important to chose an agent that understands what you are going through during this difficult time.
