Dividing the Family Home

How do spouses divide the family home in a divorce?

There is the old cliché that a home is a person's counsel. For some, that is true. Those who cherish the family residence may protect it like it is the most important possession they own. Others look at the family home as bricks, mortar and nothing more than a good or poor investment. Regardless of your outlook, spouses must understand how California divorce law deals with division of the family home.

In these articles, we will provide you with helpful information on sale of the family home before or after the divorce as well as a buyout of one spouse's interest. Spouses in a California divorce have more options than they realize when it comes to the family residence.
