MEDIATION V. LITIGATION - DIVORCE SOLUTIONS SERVICES

Question #27:
I am a 42 year old RN, with an 18 year old daughter who has Cystic Fibrosis....I am seeking information regarding the possibility of losing my home of 5 years of which I share with my husband...He has told me that I will not get the house....I am wondering if the fact that this was a VA loan (myself being the veteran), and having a child with a chronic illness what the possibilities are of losing the house. Please advise...and I live in Florida so need someone local if you have any suggestions.
Answer:
I suggest that you get in touch with an attorney-mediator in your area who has been trained in divorce mediation to assist you and your spouse in the separation and divorce.
With regard to the house, I do not believe any court would force you to sell the house, especially since you are responsible to care for your sick child. Rather than listen to the idle threats and misinformation being offered to you by your spouse, consult an attorney-mediator who is well versed in the local divorce law and can provide you with accurate information.

Good luck,
