For many Illinois couples, their house or condo is their most valuable asset. It is thus not surprising that an impending divorce can create a fair amount of concern about what will happen to their home. Several considerations come into play, including whether the home will need to be sold and when the sale should take place.
While the phrase "Who gets the house?" is often associated with divorce, many couples choose instead to sell the home. One reason for this is that the property is associated with the disappointment and bad feelings that eventually led to the split. Another is that selling the home may make property division easier.
