Please join us for the 2019 WFG Basically Title webinar series,Title Ramifications of Divorce, presented by Lisa Vesperman Still, Esq., MA State Counsel and New England Underwriter.
It might be said that the purpose of divorce is to redefine the relationship between spouses and their family members. Divorce is also the avenue through which ownership rights of spouses are altered. With few exceptions, divorce will affect the way in which title to real property is held. What are the key title underwriting issues that need to be focused upon in the context of a transaction if spouses are no longer married?
Join us as Basically Title begins a new year with an essential underwriting webinar, “Title Ramifications of Divorce”. Through this webinar, you will learn:
- How divorce affects the status of judgment liens.
- Do the terms of a divorce decree serve to change the way title to real property is vested?
- Is a support obligation arising through divorce a lien that needs be be paid at closing?
