This schedule is then used to determine the appropriate division of the assets based on a number of factors, including who made payments on a property. Likewise, any pre-nuptial or post-nuptial agreements, which protect the possession of certain assets, must be considered. The possession of any debts, such as home mortgage loans, will also come into play.
The value of these assets will then be used to determine a fair division. Spouses may be allowed to “buy out” the other in the event of a mutual ownership. Due to the high value of real estate, these trades are not very common. However, a skilled divorce attorney can help you determine and fight for a division that is in your best interests and negotiate a settlement that works in your favor.
