The marital home—and any other co-owned real estate—is typically the highest value asset to be split during a divorce. Determining who gets the home is a difficult decision. Plus, there are other factors that make the situation more complicated. Will one spouse buy the other out? If so, how? Will spouses continue to co-own a small business together, or will it be sold? How can someone going through divorce purchase a home? During this stressful time, you need answers. 

DivorceForce believes it’s integral that everyone undergoing a divorce receives answers to the aforementioned questions, and more, in an easily digestible and comprehensive format.
