Your spouse may be entitled to half of the value of the marital home in Queens, but under New York’s equitable distribution laws, the particular breakdown of how property is handled may not be 50/50.
There are numerous circumstances that complicate property issues in divorce, like whether the house was purchased prior to the marriage, how your finances were structured to pay for mortgage, upkeep, and renovations, and even whether you have children who you want to stay in the home after the divorce.
When it comes to working through asset distribution, it helps to have an experienced Queens divorce attorney to guide the process.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can make sure that your interests are fully protected, and that you don’t lose any more in the divorce than absolutely necessary.
