Depends. If you are living in the home, leaving your ex on the mortgage is fine if your ex doesn’t object. If you are moving out of the home, you certainly don’t want a mortgage in your name as that may reduce your chances to qualify for another mortgage later (unless your court order addresses non-contingent liabilities that meets lending guidelines and you are comfortable with the arrangement). As joint credit is tied to the mortgage lien until it is fully paid off, any missed payment, short sale or foreclosure will negatively impact both parties equally.

Will CP work for me?

If the following values are important to you, it is likely to be a workable option:

  • I want us to communicate with a tone of respect
  • I want to prioritize the needs of our children.
  • My needs and those of my spouse/partner require equal consideration, and I will do my best to listen objectively.
