VA Loan Eligibility After Divorce

Question: I am a veteran who purchased a home with my spouse utilizing my VA eligibility. I am now divorced and my ex-spouse was awarded the home. How do I get my eligibility back?


When the property is awarded to the veteran's spouse as a result of the divorce, entitlement cannot be restored unless the ex-spouse refinances the property and / or pays off the VA loan in full or the ex-spouse is a veteran who substitutes their entitlement.
