Comments are off for this post.
By Tracy Achen If your marriage is on the rocks, should you refinance before divorce or wait until after? For couples who own property, this is something to consider. Deciding who will keep the house and what to do with the mortgage are two of the biggest decisions you will make during divorce. It’s important to note that if both spouses’ names are on the mortgage, they are jointly responsible for repaying the loan, regardless of their marital status. A divorce decree doesn’t impact the mortgage lender. In the event the mortgage goes into default, both spouses will be equally […]

We’ve had a very happy relationship for several years, but there has always been the elephant in the room of his marriage and the block it presents to our planning a future […]

Comments are off for this post.
Many divorcing spouses worry about the possibility of their spouse selling assets during a divorce and leaving little or nothing to be divided. It can be particularly problematic if a spouse was financially controlling or secretive, or handled all the finances during the marriage with the other having a limited idea of the full financial picture.

Or, a spouse might transfer money or property to a family member to try to prevent it from being accessed by the other spouse, anticipating that the family member will transfer it back […]
