When couples who own a home decide to divorce, a decision regarding selling the marital home must be made. Many factors will come into play when making this decision. Your experienced Orlando family law divorce attorney will discuss with you issues such as the fair market value of your home; whether or not there is a mortgage on the home; whether or not you or your spouse would like to keep the home; and, if there are children, the desirability and practicality of keeping the home and maintaining continuity for the children.
If a decision is made to sell the home, the Petition for Dissolution of Marriage must contain very specific information so that the Court may consider ordering the sale. In order to protect your legal rights regarding your home, consult with a knowledgeable and experienced family law attorney. If you are in need of an attorney regarding the sale of your marital home or any other aspect of your divorce, contact Family Law of Orlando to schedule an initial consultation with Attorney Wade P. Luther. You may reach our offices by email or by calling (407) 835-9900.
