marital home division divorceBy Tamara Hoffstatter

Men's Divorce Attorney

So you and your wife bought the home of your dreams! You worked hard and saved to obtain it, and it has everything you ever wanted in a home. 

You also have a ton of memories in that house. Memories of happier times between you and your spouse before it all went south. Fond memories of bringing your newborn children home, watching your children grow up in that house, playing with the kids in the back yard, and decorating for the holidays.

You love that house, and you want to keep it. But will you end up with the marital home after your divorce?

oklahoma city divorce lawyerQuestion:

My ex-wife was awarded the marital home and all debts associated with it, and I signed the quit claim deed relinquishing all titles and rights to the residence.

However, the mortgage company said I am still legally responsible for the home. My ex-wife is about to go into foreclosure on the property and says she is trying to refinance, but this is preventing me from qualifying for a loan to purchase another house with my new family.

How can I legally remove my name from the marital home mortgage before my ex-wife goes in default and ruins my credit?

live together during divorceBy Jennifer M. Paine

Cordell & Cordell Divorce Lawyer

If you are like most divorcing couples, moving out of the marital home is not only risky (it’s been dubbed one of "The 10 Stupidest Mistakes Men Make When Facing Divorce" by Cordell & Cordell co-founder Joseph Cordell), it is also financially disastrous.

There's the increased housing expenses, for one thing, plus the burden to friends and family who intend to "help out" for a short time and then find themselves sharing homes for months, a year, or more while the divorce goes on. 

Add to these the loss of control over what occurs in your home when you are gone and the uncertainty to children, who naturally ask where each parent will live, and you have one potent situation should you separate.

But, often, the alternative is not that appealing. It is a rare couple that can cohabit peacefully while they are divorcing. Instead, the situation at home feels more like a pot of water ready to boil over. 

So, what can you do to avoid the costs and uncertainty of moving out, but make things easier while you and your soon-to-be-ex live together? Try these five tips on how to live together during the divorce process.
