Refi questions

My wife and I are getting ready to go through a divorce...  I'm keeping the house, and right now my (our) interest rate is 6.625%.  It's an FHA loan, with both of our names on it.  With rates so low, I'd like to get in on it...  But do I need to wait for the divorce to be finalized before proceeding?  I'm concerned rates could rise before then...  I'd also like to get her name removed from the loan, but can I do so before everythings finished in the court room?

Help is appreciated.  Thanks!

And I don't live in NY...  I live in Iowa.  Whenever I try to delete Staten Island from the optional field it repopulates itself.

In most analyst's opinion rates will stay relatively flat thought this year and maybe longer.

You have enough on your plate right now. IMHO, I would wait until your divorce is final. .... Happy funding, Rudi

Wait till your divorce is final. Interest rates will be flat for quite sometime.

Good Luck
