Mansfield Divorce Lawyer Discusses Purchasing a Home During the Process

Question:

I have signed divorce papers, but have not had a trial yet. I want to purchase a home, but do not want my spouse to have any rights to it. Is the signed document enough to protect me or
must we go thru trial before I close?

Answer:

As an experienced Mansfield Divorce¬†Lawyer, I often handle matters like this. If you purchased a home after signing your agreement but before your divorce hearing, you would need to amend your agreement to add your spouse’s release of the interest to the home. Keep in mind that nothing is “final’ until after the divorce has been approved by the judge and the requisite waiting period has expired.
