Jiulio Margalli, a divorce attorney in Key West, Florida is quoted by the AP as stating of current divorce trends in the area, “What we have now is people getting divorced and fighting over who is going to take over the debt. Who’s going to be saddled with the $800K mortgage that neither one could pay?… It used to be that we saw people get divorced and fight over the home. Now it’s, ‘Oh, my God, not only are we getting divorced, our credit is going down the tubes and we’re going into foreclosure.”
