Birmingham Divorce Attorney
Real estate considerations in a divorce can be very complex legal issues. There are often many difficult questions that need to be addressed with regard to ownership and whether the property should be included in the marital estate or not. These issues require the attention of an experienced property division lawyer who can help to ensure that your interests are protected to the fullest extent possible.
At the Alabama law firm of Gina H. McDonald & Associates, our lawyers help clients to resolve even the most complex real estate matters. We have experience in a broad range of these matters, including inherited property, commercial property, second residences and vacation homes, "underwater" mortgages and other real estate related issues in a divorce.
Helping You Understand Your Rights in Property Division Proceedings
When you hire our firm, we provide a complete review of your properties and gain an understanding of any concerns you might have. If you inherited property at any time or owned property independently prior to the marriage, there is a possibility that it could be considered part of the marital estate if it was used for the benefit of the marriage. We will help you understand the law regarding transmutation, commingling and other issues.
We will help you determine if a particular property should be included in the assets to be distributed and address any concerns about ownership. We also handle issues related to the distribution of debt related to real estate. If you owe more on your mortgage than the house is worth, we can advise you on the possibility of a short sale or other strategies to minimize the impact of "underwater" real estate on your final divorce agreement.
