Dealing with a property when separating

Property is normally the single most significant asset in a marriage. How to deal with the family home upon divorce raises many questions.

On this page, we will consider some of the methods in which property can be divided up, and various other aspects relating to property and divorce.

Dividing property when separating is always difficult and legal advice should always be sought where possible.

Splitting a property as part of a divorce settlement

There are several options for sharing the equity in a marital home between the divorcing parties, just as there are with sharing money, pensions, and assets.

Figuring out the best solution will depend on the specific circumstances of your case and will generally require negotiation between the couple.

If you are able to agree upon the division of the family home without legal representation it will allow for a more affordable and less acrimonious separation.
