My question involves a marriage in the state of: Tennessee
I just received an Opinion and Memorandum from a judge regarding my divorce case. It was a 2yr marriage, and I purchased my home prior to the marriage. The judge ruled the home to be marital property, along with several other errors in his ruling. We are going to appeal it. The judge awarded my wife transitional alimony, allowing her to remain in the home while I continue to pay for mortgage and all expenses, until the sale of the house, at which point she will receive 100k from the proceeds. Our first move is to file a Stay of Execution in order to remove her from the home, and stop alimony (which has been going on for the last two years when she first filed for divorce). The next move will be a Notice of Appeal.
Question: Is it possible to put the house on the market, sell it, and freeze her proceeds (100k) in an escrow account until the appeals process is final? That will allow me to get rid of the home and essentially stop paying her alimony.
Thanks in advance.
