  • Description
    It took two people to get the house, now that they are breaking up, how does one of them keep it? How do you keep one from sabotaging the other? What happens when one has to decide between the kids and the mortgage? All too often a foreclosure case involves a divorce, or a divorce involves a foreclosure. Major changes to divorce law took effect on January 1, 2018, and additional changes to child support that took effect on July 1, 2017. More of these changes are relevant to a foreclosure action than one would think. This CLE program will review what divorce practitioners need to know about foreclosure, and what consumer debtor practitioners need to know about divorce.
