My question involves a marriage in the state of: Ohio
I am wondering how a court handles negative equity in a home during a divorce. I have been separated from my husband for a year. He lives in our marital residence and pays the mortgage which is in his name only. His intent is to keep the home because he has custody of our kids and wants to keep them there. But he tells me that he owes $270K and its only worth $230K so he wants to offset other assets I would receive with this negative equity. Is this typically what a court would do or does he actually have to sell the house first? Since my name is not on the home does that make a difference?
