“If we are foreclosed upon, do we have to immediately vacate the property?”
The answer to that question isn’t as straightforward as one may think.
Generally, there are two different paths to remove the former homeowner after being foreclosed upon: (1) formal eviction process, and (2) informal negotiations between former homeowner and new owner (usually the lender bank or the highest bidder at the foreclosure sale). The first option of formal eviction can be costly and requires additional involvement of the justice system.

Any divorce is a difficult situation. I often tell my clients that everything in marriage has been about piecing two lives together. Spouses focus on how to live together and, often times, approach every challenge and situation thinking about how two people will approach a situation. When folks get divorced they are attempting to reverse that entire thought and action process by learning once again how to do things as a singular individual. It can be a scary proposition emotionally, physically and mentally.
