Mortgage Payments After Separation

Mortgage Payments After Separation

By Marcus Morales on Mar 08, 2018 in Articles, Business Valuation, Divorce, Legal Separation, Property Division, Spousal Support

In divorce it is common for one spouse to live, and pay for, the community home after separation.

If the spouse is using separate property to pay the community debt, i.e. wages earned after separation, then the payor spouse may be entitled to reimbursement from the community for paying the community debt. Beware, a spouse who resided in the community home exclusively may have to reimburse the community for the rental value of the home during the period of exclusive use.

Typically, only the principal balance paid on the mortgage, not interest, will be reimbursable.

Clients Are Saying:

This lawyer fought for every inch in my personal injury case. In the end, it paid off with a large verdict. A verdict that other lawyers said we couldn't get. He is not afraid to take cases to trial and go to bar for you. I would recommend him. He always gets back to me in a reasonable amount of time after I call. Highly recommended.
