divorce/short sale and moving on

I divorced a couple of years ago but the (our) house  just short sold this year. I am remarried and my wife's house just sold conventionally. She doesn't work and I have my VA certificate for a new purchase ready. Is there any path forward for us?

It would depend on what the divorce decree said.  Were you still liable for the mortgage?  If so, then it would have affected your credit.

Do indeed speak to a lender and see how they can help you.

Have you spoken with a mortgage lender yet? Most likely you are not going to be able to purchase for 42 months.  I wrote a blog on short sales, but didn't address your question. [deleted by Zillow moderator. Please see our Good Neighbor Policy for posting guidelines]
