This blog is about COST EFFICIENCY - how I really get great value for $0 and pass it on to the divorce community. The YouTube video is supportive but has extra information; this blog has information that the video does not have. So, I recommend reading and watching.
And here’s that YouTube video:
I get emails like this quite frequently:
I have a case set for mediation in two weeks. Husband and wife have a house and wife will be buying husband’s interest in the house. She will be getting a mortgage. Do you know approximately how much you would charge on this case? What documents will you need from us.
Hi Most Awesome Attorney,
So happy to help. The cool thing is that I charge $0 to you, $0 to the client, $0 to everyone. Of course, mortgage financing has its own costs; but, that would be the case anyway. That’s how I get paid. I have built my business in such a way that minimizes cost while increasing efficiency and performance. It’s pretty awesome if I say so myself. ?
Here’s how you can walk into mediation with a loan approval – not a pre-approval; but, a real loan approval:
This could, conceivably take place within 10 – 14 days – the loan processed and underwritten. You could reduce discussion about “can she refinance the house?” “how could she refinance?” “when could she close?” and many other questions to about 5 minutes. You just present my Assessment-Approval, the other side’s mouth falls open and you say “sign here and we’re done.” At least you’re done with that part of the mediation.
Worst case scenario is if wife needs child or spousal support to qualify. Generally, a six-month pay history must be established in addition to its continuance (as evidenced in the decree) for 3 or more years.
Otherwise, if she qualifies with her own income (or if she has been receiving support already), we typically close loans within 2-3 days after receiving a faxed/scanned copy of the conformed decree.
It's like this well kept secret. I really have happened upon an incredible business model. It's too good to be true. I was sharing this last night with some attorneys and mental health professionals. Their were shocked and could hardly get over it. But, it's true. There is actually a negative cost to doing business with me if you're divorcing and need mortgage financing.
