Find Out How To Keep Your Marital Home

Divorce involves complex property issues. One of the biggest questions is who will keep the marital home.

Your house may be one of the most significant assets you have. More than that, it may be where your children have grown up and where countless memories were made.

Divorce is hard enough without being uprooted from your home. Losing the place where you've lived can make it even more difficult.

At Terri Herron Law, we understand the importance of your home as the place where life happens. You can count on our attorney as your ally in navigating all the financial and property issues that go along with divorce. We'll walk you through your options for keeping your marital home.

Sorting Through All The Issues Surrounding Your Home

Deciding who gets to live in the home isn't the only difficult issue you'll be facing. You must also work out who will be financially responsible for the home — and how that will affect other financial and property arrangements.

Even in clear-cut cases, there's rarely an easy answer. Any number of factors may influence the determination of who gets the marital home, such as:

  • How long have the children lived in the home? How settled are they in the neighborhood? How far are their school and extracurricular activities?
  • Which parent has been the primary caretaker?
  • How much equity is in the home? How affordable is the mortgage?
  • Will one spouse be paying alimony?
  • How will the rest of the property be divided?
  • What if you want to keep the home, but can't afford it? Is refinancing an option?

Does your home have substantial worth? In high-asset divorce cases, the marital home can oftentimes turn into a contested asset because of its value. Attorney Terri Herron has considerable experience helping couples get proper valuations and resolve property disputes quickly both inside and outside of court.
