The strains of the coronavirus pandemic have sparked an increase in marital
dissolution applications. This program addresses various issues concerning the
marital home in divorce proceedings from the perspective of family law, taxation
and real estate attorneys.
Panelists will discuss the interspousal transfer of ownership of the marital
residence and its attendant issues, including first-refusal rights, second
mortgages, deferred distribution, refinancing and the impact of the parties'
credit. The tax aspects of such scenarios, including the shielding of spouses
from the capital gains tax implications in the equitable distribution of the
property, will be addressed, as well.
will also look at how to handle the income stream generated by couples whose
second home is a rental property. The panel will also provide tips on drafting
separation agreement provisions and discuss potential pitfalls in finding
mutually agreed-upon real estate brokers and appraisers.
