Understanding Property Division in Divorce

Going through a divorce can be an emotionally draining process, and the complexities surrounding property division can add to the stress. Our interactive quiz above is designed to help you understand the basics of property division in divorce cases, especially when it comes to deciding who gets the house. But let's delve a bit deeper.

Two main legal principles guide property division in divorce cases: Equitable Distribution and Community Property. Equitable Distribution, followed in most states, doesn't necessarily mean equal but rather what the court deems fair. On the other hand, Community Property, followed in states like California, dictates that marital property is divided equally. You can find more about this in our article on Property Division in California Divorce.

When it comes to the family home, the court often considers the 'best interests of the child'. This principle can be a determining factor, especially in scenarios where both parents want the house. However, the court's decision is also influenced by various other factors, including the financial stability of the parents.

But what if only one parent can afford the house? In such cases, the parent who can afford to maintain the house is often more likely to be awarded the house. This can be a daunting prospect, especially if you're dealing with limited resources. Our article on Getting a Divorce with Limited Resources provides practical advice on navigating such situations.
