We specialize in helping couples who plan to divorce avoid making expensive and long-lasting mistakes with the marital home.

We help attorneys, paralegals and mediators gather information and documentation to enhance their divorce case files.

HOW DO WE DO THIS?

We do this by helping people completely understand all of their options with the marital home including keeping the home, selling the home, mortgage and refinance options, and explaining why home due diligence, updated credit reports, and title searches are so important.

We explain to our clients how their decisions with respect to the home can impact their quality of life for many years to come.

With the information we can provide families can make better decisions and perhaps avoid making expensive and long-lasting mistakes.

Our initial pre-divorce consultations are provided at no charge.

 

HOW DO WE HELP ATTORNEYS AND MEDIATORS?

If you use appraisals in your practice to help determine the value of a home we can show you at least two gaps in the case file that can be detrimental to your clients.

We’ll explain why house due diligence is very important to determining actual value.

We’ll explain why a CLUE report should be part of your case file.

Our title company partners can provide title and lien searches on the property so no unexpected surprises surface during the process.

We can confirm equity in the house, check for mechanics liens and check to see if there is a home equity line of credit (HELOC) that has the potential of decreasing the equity in the home.

Our assistance helps you gather the details you need, creating less busy work for you and your paralegals.

The information we produce can bring about more cooperative clients.
