Obtained Copy of Child Support Order for Mortgage
May 26, 2021- Many people may not know that child support payments can be added to your regular income from your job and be used to qualify for a home mortgage. These payments boost your overall monthly income, which means you may be eligible for a bigger mortgage than you first thought. That means you can afford a better home for yourself and your family. However, first you’ll need to provide documented proof of your payments.
Our client moved across the country after his divorce and was looking to buy a new home. He needed a copy of his child support order to show his mortgage lender as soon as possible. However, he only had the names of the parties and the county in which the divorce was finalized.
The case file had not been digitized, so our family law attorneys could not access the case online. They tracked down the client’s case number and the specific courthouse where the order was located. Our attorneys then traveled to the courthouse, got a copy of our client’s order, and emailed a scan to him the afternoon of the same day of his initial consultation. Our client was very happy and will be able to move into his home much sooner because of our attorneys’ knowledge and diligence.
