Can you refinance home in divorce judgment?
The divorce judgment is the final decree in the divorce. It clarifies how marital assets including the home will be distributed. Refinancing of the house falls to the spouse who is awarded the property or allowed to buy out the other spouse's interest in it. If you got the house and want to refi - that is up to you. The only way I can see the court becoming involved at all is if you are refinancing in order to come up with the cash you need to buy out your ex. I would think those arrangements might be detailed in the decree so it is understood that regardless of how you get the money, you owe the decreed amount to your ex and need to pay it within a specified amount of time.
