Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
My name is***** and I will be helping you with your question today. This is for informational purposes only and does not establish an attorney client relationship.
If the two of you didn’t sign a joint house ownership agreement that sets forth your intentions in case your relationship ends, you have two choices. You can either follow the legal procedures that apply in Arizona, this means the court will order the property to be sold, and the net proceeds (after paying mortgages, liens, and costs of sale) to be divided or you can reach your own compromise settlement. It sounds as if the compromise will not work in this case. You need to retain a divorce attorney in your area to assert your rights in this matter. That attorney will file suit to divide the joint property and most likely the court will order it to be sold. You can search for an attorney in your area on martindale.com or lawyers.com by specialty and the site also has reviews so you can find the right attorney for you.
