User asked: on January 14, 2019 1:02 pm I have 2 -2 part questions: Wanting to file for divorce after 25 years of marriage. Husband and I bought and have lived in our current home for 18 years. The house has doubled in value since the purchase. Information I have says we will have to split the profits from the sale of the home 50/50. If affordable, one spouse can buy out the others 50%. Question #1 is: can I find a private investor and get a private loan to buy out my husband? Or will he have a say in this regard? Question #2: Will my 2 teenagers, age 15 & 17 have a choice with what parent they want to live with? OR will custody have to be split?
