A House Divided?

Couples seeking divorce are finding that breaking up is, indeed, hard to do — particularly during the recent slump in the housing market.

Janell Weinstein, a family-law attorney and legal analyst, discusses the legal ramifications of divorce on at firstwivesworld.com, and she’s saying that increasing numbers of couples are waiting to physically separate until their house is sold.

“You may be forced to live together for some period of time, after the divorce, until the house is sold,” she says. “It may be impossible for you to imagine living with your spouse after you’re divorced, but it’s a realistic expectation that you must consider.”
