Divorce and Real Estate in NYC: The opposite of a love story
Getting divorced in NYC can be emotionally and financially exhausting. The NYC real estate market often makes a divorce even more difficult due to the seemingly impossible task of finding a new affordable place to live, which becomes increasingly difficult when there are children in need of a second or third bedroom. These circumstances can result in the unfortunate situation where ex-spouses are forced to continue living together even after the divorce. It’s not difficult to imagine the mess of problems this situation can create.
While perhaps impossible to avoid in 100% of cases, our attorneys think creatively to develop and negotiate solutions that do not leave our clients in such a state of constant conflict with their spouse or ex-spouse. One of these solutions is referred to as “nesting,” and involves a scheduled sharing of the residence usually on a weekly or monthly rotation.
