What to Do with the Marital Residence in Arizona?

Posted by attorney Timothy Durkin

The marital residence. It is probably one of the most important purchases you and your spouse made over the course of your marriage. But now that the two of you have decided to part ways, the marital residence has probably turned into one of the most important, and maybe even hotly contested, issues within your divorce.

Deciding who gets to keep the house in a divorce settlement should always be a financial decision, NOT an emotional one. While acknowledging your feelings is an important part of the healing process, those feelings should not come into play when deciding what to do with the house. In order to give yourself the opportunity to truly start over, you’ve got to remember that feelings and money don’t mix very well. Therefore, it can be helpful for divorcing spouses to consult with an outside 3rd party – someone who knows the financial ins and outs of divorce in Arizona.
