Athen Apaquette

Newly divorced woman gets approved for a loan to pay out ex-husband, allowing her son to continue to live in the house he grew up in! While any change in familial status is hard on both parties, it is hardest for the children.

In this case, the woman stepped up, decided to brave a doubling of her mortgage payment, giving up personal luxuries to keep her son in the house he calls home. She re-entered the work force only 18 months ago, and was able to get approved for a loan despite her doubts and concerns.

She now feels empowered and happy that she is the sole owner of the home instead of having the separation of the house equity hanging over her head for the next few years.
