Divorce and Your House

Protecting Your Assets During Divorce in Harrisburg

"What will happen to our home?"

At Scaringi Law, this is one of the most frequent questions we hear when we sit down with clients to talk about divorce. The answer to this question will depend on your specific circumstances and is complicated by your mortgage debts, respective earning capacities of you and your spouse, and weak home prices.

Our Harrisburg divorce attorneys have answers to this question and potential solutions. With extensive experience in property division and residential real estate, we have the experience and knowledge needed to successfully address the many issues you face.

How Property is Divided in Pennsylvania

As with other assets, a house must be characterized as separate or marital property. This task becomes more complicated when separate assets are combined to purchase a house during the marriage, or separate assets are used to make major home improvements during the marriage. Our attorneys have experience resolving all types of property issues during divorce, including real estate. We will work diligently to achieve the optimal solution for you.

The family home is usually a couple's largest asset. In many cases, we have achieved a property settlement that allowed our client or the other party to keep the family home, while providing offsetting assets to the spouse not taking the house. Weak home prices or an underwater mortgage may make this an unfeasible option.

Solutions That Are Fair and Practical

In addition to achieving a fair solution that protects your interests, there are a number of practical issues that must be resolved. If one spouse is taking ownership of the house, it may be necessary to refinance the house and relieve the other of any responsibility for the mortgage, accrued property taxes and other debts or liens on the house. Scaringi Law practices extensively in the area of real estate, as well as divorce. We will provide comprehensive representation and services designed to resolve all outstanding issues.
