Even if a trial occurred, it would almost certainly relate only to the ownership interests or the distribution of proceeds, though most cases are decided on motion heard by the court based on the papers submitted by the parties.
  • Can I still file a partition if my co-owner has filed for bankruptcy? Yes, the partition action can generally be filed in the bankruptcy court or the bankruptcy court can apply state partition law to allow offsets when the co-owned property is sold by the bankruptcy trustee.

    Montoya v. Gonzales – Partition Action Case Study

    In the legal case of Montoya v. Gonzales, 232 U.S. 375 (1914), the Supreme Court of the United States was asked to decide whether a partition of land between two parties was valid. The dispute arose when the plaintiff, Montoya, purchased a tract of land from the defendant, Gonzales. Montoya then sought to partition the land into two separate parcels, one for himself and one for Gonzales. Gonzales objected to the partition, arguing that the land was not legally divisible. The Supreme Court ultimately held that the partition was valid, finding that the land was divisible and that the parties had agreed to the partition. The Court also noted that the partition was in the best interests of both parties. The case is important because it established the legal principle that land can be partitioned, even if it is not legally divisible.
