Helping You With Real Estate Issues

Your living arrangements will change after divorce. Determining what to do with your home can be difficult. Our lawyers can help you explore your options and protect your interests so can focus on your future.

Our attorneys at Haslam & Thorne, LLP, in Ontario, California, have more than 40 years of experience handling complex divorce issues. Our lawyers are AV rated* and board-certified family law specialists. Our experience and team of professionals make us the premier family law firm in the Inland Empire.

What Will Happen To Your Home?

First, we will determine when the property was purchased to see if the home is considered marital property. Then we will explore your individual options. For many divorcing spouses who own a home together, the following options may need to be explored:

  • Sell the home and split the profits
  • Rent the home
  • Buy out the other spouse and stay living in the home

Living In The Home After Divorce

If you want to stay living in the home, you will need to buy out the other spouse to own the property on your own after the divorce. We may be able to negotiate certain provisions to help you buy out the spouse over a period of time or you may be able to refinance the home.

We have successfully negotiated settlements in the past that allowed one spouse and the children to stay living in the home until the last child has graduated from high school. After that, the house can be sold and profits will be split between the two parties.

Our team will evaluate all of your options to help you find the best solution for you and your family. We care about protecting your best interests. At our firm, you will receive caring and compassionate legal advice from our skilled legal team.
