Why Are Our Initial Consultations Provided at No Charge?
Simple. It’s all about protecting consumers and helping them to avoid expensive mistakes.
Our professional expertise is needed by anyone who is seeking a divorce and who owns real estate property together with their soon to be ex-spouse.
All of our professional partners provide the Pre-Divorce consultations at no charge.
Through our Pre-Divorce consultations, we will explain in detail how to avoid expensive and long-lasting pitfalls with the marital home and answer questions you have.
Our mortgage partners can explain the risks of both partners remaining on the home loan should they decide to keep the marital home.
If a decision is made to keep the marital home, our mortgage professionals can walk you through the qualifying process and advise you on what options may serve you best.
Divorce and the Marital Home – Here Come the Complications
Unfortunately, more than 40% of all marriages end in divorce.
Divorces are usually complex and it is difficult to understand all of the pitfalls surrounding the marital home. Should one of you keep the house or should the house be sold? If one of the spouses keeps the house can they afford to pay for the house? Can the person qualify to refinance the home on their own, relieving the ex-spouse from the mortgage loan? The decision gets complicated.
Why Should You Work with our Professional Partners?
We can help you avoid expensive mistakes, help protect your consumer rights, help protect your credit scores and help you preserve your future homeownership eligibility. We offer all of our services with consumer protection in mind.
Later, if you decide that selling the marital home is the best choice for you and your family, and if you found our information helpful, we hope you’ll consider us to be the listing real estate agent for the sale of the home and our professional partners can assist you with the refinance of the home or new mortgage loans and the escrow process.
