Shared Property


#1

My husband and I have been separated for over a year. We own the house that he is living in. Will we be able to co-own the house after the divorce?

Yes, you will still jointly own the home after the divorce, but as tenants in common rather than as joint tenants with the right of survivorship. It will become more difficult to “split” the home after divorce if you do not execute a separation agreement dealing with its disposition, or file a claim with the court for equitable distribution.
