Is the state of Virginia a community property state?

If so, what exactly does that mean.

 

Thanks!

Virginia is not a community property state. These are:

 

  • Arizona
  • California
  • Idaho
  • Louisiana
  • Nevada
  • New Mexico
  • Texas
  • Washington
  • Wisconsin
  • Territory of Puerto Rico.

Their laws state that property accumulated during a marriage would be divided equally in the event of a divorce.

 

Other states have a policy of dividing assets on an equitable distribution basis.

Is there a way that a husband or wife could purchase a house without having the other on the loan?

sleepless,

 

how did they do that...did they include your debt in which your husbands salary could handle on his own?

 

Thanks,

Beth

I also am getting my mortgage without my spouse. However if you are not using your spouse's credit/debt you can not use their income either. All credit cards, car payments, etc with your name will be used in determining you debt to income ratio.
