There’s really no way around it, divorce sucks! Although it’s probably little comfort you are not alone. In fact, there is nearly on divorce every 36 seconds in the US. That’s close to 2,400 divorces per day, 16,800 divorces in a week and 876,000 a year.
Honestly, it’s one of my least favorite ways to buy a house but the truth is it happens to the best of us and when clients find us in this situation we try to make it easy to make the best decision on how to handle a house and move on.
While we work directly with a great title company and attorneys to help the process however we can, there is no getting around the fact that you must get started with the divorce process yourself. We know it’s hard all around and in our desire to help we have put together a list of divorce resources for Texas to at least get you pointed in the right direction. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions and we are happy to recommend some folks to help.
