Good afternoon Kim,
Thank you for the additional information.
As the properties are jointly owned, your spouse does not have the legal ability to unilaterally force the sale of either of the properties. Only the court has the ability to make such an order, and the court will not routinely do such a thing before the finalization of the divorce proceeding itself.
In fact, only in rare circumstances is there an order that a property be sold in a divorce. Generally, the spouse keeping the property will be ordered to pay cash or give other real or personal property
to the other spouse for their share of the property value, if the equalization of property in the division between the two is not equal already.
So no, you will not expect your properties to be sold-----at least until the end of the divorce process, and only on order of the family law
court---which may well never come to pass.
