Closing Real Estate Loopholes in Divorce Mediation

Divorce mediators who help spouses make real estate choices during their separation and divorce often face multiple challenges. A decision to sell a home or transfer its ownership to the soon-to-be ex-spouse is wrought with emotional upheavals and financial concerns. How can a divorce mediator help create a real estate flowchart for the parties’ process while honoring and balancing the emotions of all involved?

You will learn to:

  • Develop basic options with respect to real estate sales, buyouts or continued co-ownership
  • Flag tax consequences and concerns relating to real estate in divorce
  • Create a loophole-free flowchart, which covers possible options and solutions
