Who gets the house after a divorce?

On divorce, as a general rule, all assets are usually considered "family assets" regardless of whose name they are in. Your solicitor will encourage you to disclose details of all savings, property, shares and so on. Only when both of you know and agree how much capital and income there is, can you then try and reach some agreement about division. If agreement cannot be reached, it may be necessary to ask the Court to make a decision for you.
