If you are like many people in Georgia, your home is the single largest financial asset that you and your spouse own. This reality, along with the emotional attachment that many people have to their homes, it is no wonder that deciding what to do with your house when you get divorced can be so complex. What exactly are your options about your home during a divorce?
Bankrate explains that it is not uncommon for one spouse to push hard to remain in their homes after getting divorced. However, it is recommended that you think carefully about choosing this option before making a decision to do so. If you are able to refinance your mortgage so that it is in your name only, keeping your home becomes less complicated than if you retain a joint mortgage with your former spouse.
