My wife wants a divorce and we currently have our house up for sale. I put down about 100K on the house when we bought it and that money was from the sale of some inheritance property I had. The problem is that my wife wants us to do our divorce through some online website and split everything we have 50/50, including the house.
Because of the slow real estate market, we have already lowered our sale price considerably and I would lose a lot of my down payment if we did a 50/50 split. If we could get a good price for the house, I’d be alright with doing a 50/50 split. We owe 365K and the sale price of the house right now is 559K. I just want to get close to my original investment back and she can have the rest. What should I do?
