“What Not to do during the Divorce Process”

by Jun 5, 2018


In a previous recent Blog, we discussed some of the issues surrounding the sale of the marital residence, refinancing, and that the spouse not receiving the home somehow being able to purchase another home in spite of the first mortgage continuing.  A number of other questions surround behaviors that may impact on the party not receiving the home, to be able to borrow sufficient funds in order to purchase a home independently.   To assist in this, please review the following as points to avoid during the time that the divorce is underway and before it is final:

  1. Do not change jobs;
  2. Do not quit your job;
  3. Do not finance anything else (cars, boats, airplanes, cottages, etc.);
  4. Do not co-sign a loan for anyone else;
  5. Do not miss payments.

Any of these things can result in added difficulty in obtaining a new loan for your own independent home purchase.
