I was very interested in this article, as the affordability of remaining at a family home is often a prime concern for clients dealing with financial issues on a divorce.

When a couple divorces, their housing needs (including the needs to provide a home for the children) are one of the factors the court will look at. If new mortgage products become available making this more affordable, there may be more families who will be able to remain in their family home after divorce.

This is however subject to how affordable the mortgage and costs of staying at the home will be, and what impact this may have on the other spouse.
