Online Divorce Course - Preparing For Mortgage Financing During and After Divorce

Are you currently going through a divorce and need information on refinancing your mortgage or buying a new home once the divorce is final? Being educated about divorce mortgage planning can benefit both you and your spouse. It shouldn't be one-sided.

Often  conflict arises out of a lack of knowledge. This divorce workshop allows you to take control of your situation and divorce mortgage planning so you are in a stronger position to negotiate while removing conflict and unrealistic expectations.

This course takes a deep dive into the 4-Phases of Divorce Mortgage Planning helping divorcing homeowners to be in an overall stronger position when needing mortgage financing during and after the divorce.

Whether you need to refinance your marital mortgage to buy your soon-to-be ex-spouse out or you are selling your family home and need help purchasing a new home, we want to help you reach a mutual understanding of how divorce changes the way you may have obtained mortgage financing in the past and how we can make it smoother for you during or after the divorce process.

"Preparing for Mortgage Financing During and After Divorce" helps you answer questions such as:

  • Can I refinance the current mortgage into my name and what are the new requirements when I receive spousal or child support?
  • How can I refinance the current mortgage even though I'm not a current borrower on the loan?
  • Can I purchase a new home when my name remains on the current mortgage to the family home?
  • Can I buy a new home before the divorce is final?
  • What's the difference between alimony, maintenance, and spousal support and how does it affect my mortgage strategies.
  • Are you required to pay spousal support or child support and how will it affect your ability to get mortgage financing?
  • Why can't I close a new mortgage loan before my divorce is final?
  • Can I assume the existing mortgage so we don't lose our low interest rate?
  • How does the distribution of joint debt affect my mortgage application?
  • What are my home equity options when keeping the marital home?
  • What if I'm getting a lump sum settlement or a portion of my spouse's retirement account and I have no other income source?
  • and many more important questions to consider during divorce.
