Tristar Cred answered:
Have you looked into repairing your credit? Have you talk to a mortgage broker about Rapid Rescore?The company I work for can get your credit score improvement in days! They're having their quarterly FREE Credit repair service give away.The drawing is December 1st. I used them and very satisfied with the results. My credit score improved around 100 points and a lot of old and incorrect things were removed quickly!. .
If you do not want to wait for the drawing call them (888) 865-3282 Their prices are pretty reasonable and they will work with you until the end. You don't have to pay for their service until AFTER the task is completed.
Good luck and i hope this info helps!

Where do you want to buy a house? US Banks don't do mortgages in Canada and Canadian Banks generally don't do mortgages in the US, although RBC did have a program a while ago.

I could be wrong, so check with a US Bank that your wife may already have a relationship with.
By the way, my wife is Canadian too, but we live in the US.

Bill Eckler answered:
Filing charges is something that you would have to consult with the local police department about. Without knowing the details, it's impossible to advise you well, however, with children and school issues it's often best to begin at the source of the problem. Generally schools want the educational experience for all of their students to be a rewarding and positive one and will work with you and your children to resolve problems. ... more

You can ask, but if the bank/seller says no you have to stick with the contract.

There is nothing wrong with shop around for a mortgage broker that can explore all your financing status and advice you properly. If for any reason you do not get pre approved for certain amount, they can be able to guide you to the right path.

Best of Luck,

Spirit Messingham answered:
I would recommend you speak with a financial advisor, then your accountant. Realtors are neither. Next, talk with a local lender about what to expect, money down, and etc on a VA loan. I think you will be pleased with their answers.

Some numbers you should have avaialble for review would include your current mortage and what rate your other "debt" is, IE are we talking about credit card debt? For example 21% interest rate on a credit card Vs 4% home mortgage? Pretty easy math on that one.

Best of luck.
