The Elephant on the Scale
When you think about an equitable divorce – a separation that is fair to both parties, the house is often the elephant on the scale. It is typically the largest asset, by far, that you hold as communal property and can overwhelm your other financial decisions.
How you fare with the sale of your current home has a huge impact on whether or not you can afford another one. Even if one of you decides to keep your current home, the financial tides are shifting dramatically and you may not be able to afford it.
I have a specialty in real estate transactions involving divorce, and my experience can help you make informed decisions that will allow you to plan for these eventualities.
