How will a court determine who gets the house in a divorce?
While I am not licensed to practice law in your state, I can give some general guidance on this issue.
Assets are a major concern when the topic of divorce arises. Keep in mind that states look to differing facts when determining an equitable division.
Some states consider marital fault and others do not. If this is at issue then you should consult an attorney for a full evaluation of your assets.
Regardless of if marital fault is taken into consideration there are many other factors involved in such a determination: 1) When was the house purchased? 2) Where did the money for the house come from? 3) How are similar funds managed? 4) Who pays the mortgage? 5) Have any improvements been made to the house and by whom? 6) How are mortgage payments made and by whom?
Keep in mind that no one case is the same and that the facts of each case are always essential for an accurate analysis.
