Divorce Appraisal for Your House?

Home Appraisal and Divorce

Home Appraisal and DivorceHome appraisals, for any use, usually cause a bit of discomfort and distress, with the homeowner hoping for a favorable outcome, unsure of who is going to actually perform the appraisal, and uncertainty about how unfinished projects and minor repairs will affect the value. Appraisals for divorce can be even more nerve-wracking, as the parties’ lives are being torn apart, and their assets are exposed to scrutiny, swinging in the wind, with strangers determining the outcome.

Bernhardt Appraisal is aware of the divorce stressors, and tries to mitigate the pain for both sides through mature interactions, and mindful procedures. It’s a serious decision. Emotions are high, and people’s futures are at stake. Our appraisals are transparently and credibly prepared, according to the guidelines of the appraisal profession, known as USPAP. Nathan Bernhardt, the owner and appraiser at Bernhardt Appraisal, personally guarantees quality appraisal process and review on every appraisal performed.

The appraisal process can be confusing. Nathan says his job is to connect with you, and simplify the process for you. At Bernhardt Appraisal, the number one job as a real estate appraiser is to be credible.

Why January

The New Year is a time for making changes to improve our lives.

For many in unhappy marriages, one of those changes is divorce. January has long been a popular month for divorce filings.

Professional lives slow down during the holidays, and people focus on family, togetherness and traditions. But simmering below the holiday cheer is grave disappointment for some.

Spouses may not live up to expectations. Or one too many drinks at a Christmas party could lead to inappropriate gestures or remarks, which, for those who have been unhappy for a long time, could be the straw that breaks the camel's back.

Some couples have decided to keep up appearances for one last holiday season as an intact family.

"I've had a lot of people retain me and say, 'Don't file the papers until the first of the year,'" says Henry S. Gornbein, P.A., and Partner at Gornbein, Fletcher & Smith, PLLC, a family law firm in Bloomfield Hills, Mich.

Back in 1995, I was approached by a therapist and a web designer, talking about the Internet.  At that time, the Internet was almost unheard of.  I had no idea what it was.  The web designer was a man named John Thawley, who I work with to this day.  The therapist was involved in the beginning but dropped off the face of the earth shortly after the website was launched.  The website was called DivorceOnline.com.  It was launched in 1995.  In May of 1996, one of the most salient features of Divorce Online, entitled ‘He Said…She Said’, was launched.  Divorce Online was a site with a goal of approaching divorce related issues legally, psychologically, and economically.  There were many articles posted that are still relevant to this day.

Here are some questions parents should ask themselves when considering joint custody:

Q: How well do you feel you and the other parent can get along?

A: Parents should cooperate with each other. "Support the child's relationship with both parents," Barbara Nordhaus, assistant clinical professor at the Yale Child Study Center, said Thursday. "Drop-offs and pickups should go smoothly. The better a couple can get along, the easier joint custody will be for the children," said Beth Clark, clinical psychologist and a consultant to the University of Michigan Center for the Family and Child. Leslie de Pietro, coordinator of Family Care Resources at the University of Michigan, agreed. "Children shouldn't be used a pawns." Parents should meet regularly to discuss the joint custody situation without the children.

Life Coach/Divorce Recovery for Women

The way to recover and thrive after divorce is simple: Until you can release the toxic emotions surrounding your divorce, it is impossible for you to move forward in life and be happy.  It takes enormous commitment and effort but it can be achieved.  If you want to lead a new life that is both fulfilling and happy, you must let go of the negative emotions and thoughts that hold you back from creating a life you love.  And guess what else?  Who do you suppose pays the biggest price when it comes to toxic emotions?  You.

During the divorce process, the negative emotions that you were already experiencing in your marriage go haywire!  During times of crisis, our world appears to crumble and with it our concept of whom we are. Our mind chatter turns up the volume to deafening levels.  We question everything.  We feel emotions so intense that we often wonder if we will survive them.  Anger, sadness, depression, rage, grief, resentment, bitterness, and confusion are some of the feelings we are hit with.
