In divorce, deciding what to do with the house can become a source of strife, confusion, and financial ruin. Most are unprepared for the legal and financial ramifications about keeping or selling their home-their most important financial asset.Divorce is stressful enough by itself. In the midst of other traumas, many divorcing people discover that they aren't just married to a spouse-they're also tied to their home and a mortgage, too.

As a retired Los Angeles Superior Court Judge and family law mediator, who has handled literally hundreds of cases involving the sale of the family residence, I know that next to custodial issues with children, no other issue in divorce is fraught with as much tension, misunderstanding, and anger as the sale of the family residence.

Yet she recognizes the emotional elements and adds a lot of personal encouraging comments. It's also sprinkled with dozens of examples from her wide experience with many upset couples as a real estateagent specializing in divorce home sales. This book has been needed for quite a while.
