What Are the Options After a Divorce?

A divorce is one of the most stressful things a person can endure. The last thing you may want to think about is what to do about the practical details of life, like what happens to your home.

There are three basic options, each of which will affect your financial future:

  • Sell the home, which is often the easiest option for both people.
  • One person keeps the home. In this case, arrangements need to be made to change the mortgage to reflect sole ownership.
  • Continuing to co-own may be an option if the divorce is amicable.

But which one is right for you?
