Customer Question

When there is a land severence and the forms are being signed, there is a little box that asks if the land is because of a divorce. Would a divorce expedite matters?

No that will not expedite matters. It affects tax issues.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I know that it is a tax matter but what I wanted to know is will it cause the land to have to be split because of the divorce. See the taxes on the property is being paid by three brothers and one of the brothers won`t get the land severed because he doesn`t want to pay a separate tax. I want a divorce from one of the those brothers, so will it force my brother in law`s hand to do it
Expert:  Debra replied 2 years ago.

Only a court order can assist with that.

Just the fact that you are divorcing doesn't have any effect on the issues.
