I like how Los Angeles Divorce and Family Law succinctly sums up the choices:
What are the options for dividing the house?Those same choices apply in Indiana. They also applied in contested hearings The only question being - which one works best for the particular circumstances of the case?
There are three options if you are trying to reach a settlement:
* One spouse buys out the community interest share of the other spouse;
* The house is sold and the proceeds are divided; and
* The house remains in joint names for a limited period of time and is then sold to the other spouse or is put on the market.
