In this video, divorce attorney Ken Novenstern explains that when it comes to the marital home, it is fairly common for one spouse to buy out the other as the settlement agreement is negotiated. However, with interest rates soaring in recent years, this has become a challenging issue. No one wants to refinance a mortgage at today’s significantly higher cost — and, unfortunately, there is no simple solution.
