When people divorce in Pennsylvania, a part of the divorce settlement will include a division of property acquired during the marriage. Most couples jointly own a home, while some own several pieces of real estate. If a home was jointly purchased during the marriage, the spouses are considered to be "tenants in the entirety" of the property sharing equal rights in it.
Though many people in Philadelphia recognize that creating a custody arrangement between divorcing parents may be an extremely difficult part of separating, so is property division. It is how a marital estate is divided that could have a strong impact on either spouse's financial future.
