Splitting the value of your home and dividing assets in divorce
‘We understand that your family home means much more than bricks and mortar to you’
Your home is the centre of family life. Some of the most upsetting questions in divorce are what will happen to the family home and how are other financial assets such as savings divided in the divorce or separation process? Deciding who gets the house in a divorce can be even more complicated when there are children. This is an area that our family solicitors are adept at dealing with.
How can you settle who gets which assets in a divorce?
The family home should not be looked at in insolation from all the other family assets. It is the value of the family assets as a whole and the needs and resources of the children and each party that will determine what happens to the family home.
Whether you and your partner have an amicable split or are going through a tougher time, our team of divorce lawyers can help you come to an agreement on your home, other properties or indeed any of your jointly owned assets.
