Dividing a family's assets is one of the biggest challenges for a divorcing couple. There are multiple approaches that can be taken, and each Alabama couple has a set of goals when it comes to splitting up their accumulated assets. When it comes to brokerage accounts, there are also serious tax consequences associated with various divorce choices. Couples should be aware of the tax obligations that accompany each option and make decisions that preserve the greatest possible share of wealth.
For many divorcing spouses, the primary concern is keeping the family home. Many people have a great deal of time, effort and money invested in their houses, and there are some who are willing to do almost anything to retain the properties during divorce. Unfortunately, retention might not be an option for some in Alabama. A new type of lending product currently being considered by British lenders could change that reality, and many American spouses are waiting to see if the "divorce mortgage" seems likely to cross the Atlantic.
