Real Estate Issues in Divorce

This issue of real estate in divorce is often a highly contested issue, especially in this economy and in light of the burst of the real estate housing market bubble. Many people are underwater on their mortgages, and often spouses cannot decide who should be responsible for the debt or how to allocate the proceeds from the sale of a marital home or any investment properties.

At O'Brian & Associates, we have extensive experience with property division in divorce actions, specifically in the area of real estate valuation, distribution and division. Give us a call today to schedule an appointment with a lawyer. Based in Redmond, we serve clients on the Eastside and throughout the Greater Seattle area.

Options For Handling Housing In A Divorce

Our attorneys can advise you of your options regarding:

  • How to handle a short sale during a divorce
  • Avoiding foreclosure by structuring creative solutions such as holding the house as tenants in common
  • Achieving equitable distribution by selling the house and dividing the proceeds
  • Negotiating for one spouse to take responsibility for the house in exchange for the other spouse receiving other assets as consideration
  • Structuring a lien so one spouse makes payments to the other in exchange for retaining possession of a marital home and eventually owning it
  • Helping structure agreements where both spouses continue to reside in the same house because their economic situation prevents separate residences
