Alimony can be a contentious subject for couples going through divorce. Alimony is not a given in every divorce, and it will not automatically be granted when individuals in Virginia start the divorce process. Much like details of a property division settlement, an alimony agreement can be negotiated, and several individual factors will play a role in how the court makes decisions regarding alimony.
As a divorce unfolds, each party involved has to make very difficult decisions. One of those difficult decisions can be what to do about the house and the shared mortgage. Virginia couples in the midst of a property division agreement or who are concerned about finances may want to weigh the options before deciding what to do about that shared mortgage during a divorce.
