When dealing with clients going through a divorce, educating both parties becomes essential to guiding them through parsing up the financial assets. Many women may want to keep the house, for example, when they may not be able to qualify to own the home. Men may not realize how a battle with their former spouses may affect their relationships with their children.
This is where you can be a great source of support to whichever party is your client. Women may be better off focusing on the financial assets instead of a cumbersome hard asset like the house which might end up being more of a burden than a blessing. Women want to stay in their homes, yet showing them how to manage financial settlements so they can get a home for which they can qualify might be a better option than staying in the one they currently live in.
