Addressing Mortgage Concerns during a Divorce

When:  Nov 10, 2018 from 11:15 AM to 12:15 PM (CT)
Associated with  Section - Family Law

Deadline to Register: November 8

This presentation will review the most common issues (and solutions) parties face when it comes to buying or refinancing a home during a divorce.  Knowing what issues come up, key language needed for the decree, and understanding the timing of the legal and mortgage processes can make the difference between getting a loan approval vs denial. 

The following specifics will be addressed: 

  • Can a party buy another home if their name is still on the old home?
  • What are the requirements to use child support or spousal maintenance to qualify for the home loan?
  • Timing.  When can someone buy or refinance a home when a divorce is in process?
  • Marital Lien vs Cash Equalizer – the language in the decree can have a significant impact on the loan. 
  • Creative examples to address debt through marital liens 

The Family Law Section membership will meet prior to the CLE at 9:30 a.m. 

All Section members are welcome and encouraged to attend. The meeting agenda and materials will be sent closer to the meeting date.
