56. Will My Ex Get My House If I Divorce?
Will My Ex Get My House If I Divorce?
Family Law can really ruin things for people who have bought their own home. Over the past several months, if not years, the prices of homes have skyrocketed. It is no longer a simple feat to purchase a home – it requires a lot of hard work and obviously, money. To get a home, people have to work through school, spend years in full-time employment, finally earn enough income to secure a home, then make mortgage payments for several years.
After doing all that if the homeowner marries, then separates, a large chunk, perhaps even half of all that effort goes away to the ex “for free.” Marriage can take away your most significant asset. In this episode of the Ontario Family Law Podcast, Certified Specialist in Family Law, John Schuman, explains how that happens, and how to prevent it from happening, so married spouses can keep their homes if they divorce.
In this edition of the Ontario Family Law Podcast, Certified Specialist in Family Law, John Schuman, explains the options for working out custody/access issues without resort to the Courts. He describes parenting mediation, parenting coordination, family law arbitration, custody/access assessments, the Office of the Children’s Lawyer and how each of these options works and when each of them can be best. This podcast also describes how parents can have greater control over the parenting plan after separation by using these other methods.
All separated parents, who do not have a parenting plan or agreement over custody/access issues must listen to this podcast to find out not only how to get the best results and protection for their kids, but also how to get the parenting arrangements that work best for them.
