Greater Hamil­ton - Di­vorce is rarely easy and of­ten means a lot of dif­fi­cult de­ci­sions. One of the most im­por­tant de­ci­sions is what to do about the house.

In the midst of the heavy emo­tional and fi­nan­cial tur­moil, what you need most is some nonemo­tional, straight­for­ward, spe­cific in­for­ma­tion and an­swers. Once you know how a di­vorce af­fects your home, your mort­gage and taxes, crit­i­cal de­ci­sions are eas­ier. Neu­tral, third party in­for­ma­tion can help you make log­i­cal, rather than emo­tional, de­ci­sions.

Prob­a­bly the first de­ci­sion is whether you want to con­tinue liv­ing in the house. Will the fa­mil­iar sur­round­ings bring you com­fort and emo­tional se­cu­rity, or un­pleas­ant mem­o­ries? Do you want to min­i­mize change by stay­ing where you are, or sell your home and move to a new place that of­fers a new start? Only you can an­swer those ques­tions, but there will al­most cer­tainly be some fi­nan­cial reper­cus­sions to your de­ci­sion process. What can you af­ford? Can you man­age the old house on your new bud­get? Is re­fi­nanc­ing pos­si­ble? Or is it bet­ter to sell and buy? How much house can buy on your new bud­get?

To help you know what ques­tions you should ask and how to ar­rive at the right an­swer for your spe­cific sit­u­a­tion, a FREE spe­cial re­port has been pre­pared by in­dus­try ex­perts en­ti­tled “Di­vorce: What You Need to Know About Your House, Your Mort­gage and Taxes”.
