Divorce and Verifying Numbers

  Posted on April 11, 2017

I met with a client in my Brentwood office today and discussed his ability to get a mortgage.  He spoke with a mortgage professional yesterday and that person told him he would qualify for a mortgage.  The numbers din not look right to me.  So, I called the mortgage contact.  They had transposed two numbers and infact the client did not qualify for a mortgage.  Therefore, his proposed divorce settlement was not realistic.    This is an example of why it is important to double check all the numbers when reviewing a divorce settlement.  You have one chance to get a fair settlement.  Take your time to ensure all the numbers are correct.
