Question: I am divorcing my husband due to domestic violence against me & my daughter. Will I be able to keep the house without having to buy out his share?
Answer: In family law cases, the judge will be the ultimate deciding factor regarding disputed community property disposition. Community property is property shared by both spouses. The judge will look at factors such as domestic violence when making a decision regarding property division and child custody. For legal advice please contact an attorney.
