5 Best Practices for Managing Divorce and Mortgage

In the unwelcome circumstance of splitting with a partner, we have to deal with the unpleasant job of sorting through assets, including the mortgage. There’s pretty much nothing worse than trying to divide such a major asset. After all, divorce and mortgage do not mix well together.

Each province sets its own laws concerning the division of marital property, but for the most part, anything acquired during the marriage that you still own at the time of the separation must be divided equally between the spouses. Under the law, both parties have an equal right to the matrimonial home, but the mortgage lender doesn’t care. They just want to collect their money. So, how can you handle your mortgage if you and your spouse split up?

Below are the best practices for managing divorce and mortgage with a calm, calculated approach:

8 Best Mom Hairstyles for Fashionable Mothers

Let’s face it, being a mother can be hectic, crazy and chaotic. Not to mention you’re probably the busiest you’ve ever been, but that doesn’t mean your hair has to be chaos too! When you’re a mom, you don’t have ample time to go to the hair salon or spend time styling your hair in the morning. Chances are you want something low maintenance that still looks fantastic.

Fortunately, there are a wide variety of hairstyles out there that require less daily maintenance. As a general rule of thumb, shorter hair requires less maintenance than long hair does, it also gives new born children less to tug on!

Cutting your hair short may make you feel as though you’re crossing over into “mom hair” territory, but the right short hairstyle can be chic, so long as it suits you. The style you choose depends on your hair type and facial structure. If you’re skeptical, ask your hairdresser what haircuts would best suit your facial features, hair features and busy mother lifestyle.
