Divorce & Foreclosure Attorneys in Scottsdale
Helping Couples Protect Their Finances throughout a Divorce
More often than not, one of the key factors precipitating a divorce is economic stress. Because of the economy and the housing crisis, many Arizona divorce actions today also involve financial issues such as home foreclosures, bankruptcy, and credit counseling. Many divorcing couples who are not yet in foreclosure find it virtually impossible to sell their marital homes, making it difficult to afford their mortgages after the divorce. At Singer Pistiner, PC., our approach is never to judge our clients, but to protect their interests and make sure they understand their legal options.
If your marital home is subject to foreclosure, or if you are getting a divorce but can’t sell your house, we can help. Our Scottsdale divorce and foreclosure attorneys can help you make the decisions that will best protect your interests during and after your divorce.
Equitable Division of Home Equity & Real Estate Debt
Your home is probably your most significant asset, and your mortgage is likely your largest debt. How to fairly divide your home and mortgage can be one of the most significant issues involved in the division of property during divorce.
If you are close to or in foreclosure during your divorce action, it can have a significant impact on your marital property division. Our lawyers can work with you to maximize the value of your home as you prepare to divide it.
If you have equity in your house that can’t currently be realized because you can’t sell your home, we can make sure that your fair share of the equity is taken into account as we negotiate the equitable division of your marital assets.
If you are not involved in foreclosure proceedings, we can negotiate with your mortgage lender for options such as a short sale or a deed in lieu of foreclosure. If approved, these could allow you to retain some of the value of your investment or limit your debt.
We can also assist you with the proper allocation of mortgage debt and other marital debt. We are dedicated to seeking the most positive divorce settlement possible and to helping you through this tough situation so you can move forward with your life.
