I Paid The Majority Of The Down Payment On Our House. Can I Get The Difference Back In Our Divorce In Brooklyn?

Yes, you can certainly make a strong case for compensation for an imbalance in contributions to a down payment as part of your settlement in a Brooklyn divorce.

What the exact shape of that will be depends on many factors.

If you’ve decided to sell the marital home, you should be entitled to a larger share of the ultimate profits.

If one of you has chosen to retain the home, then the buy-out cost should be set substantially in your favor.

If your marriage has a lot of assets, debts, and cash to allocate, the difference in the down payment can play a sizeable role in the final settlement agreement and dramatically reduce any exposure you have to high payouts or loss of significant assets.

In a divorce, everything is negotiable, and the more tools you have to work with, the better off you are.

The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help you get the best settlement agreement possible.
