What happens to the marital home in divorce?

On Behalf of | Jun 16, 2017 | Divorce |

Many people purchase a home with their spouse. This is a big decision that will impact your life in many ways, including if you divorce at some point in the future.

If you are going through the divorce process and have questions about what will happen to the marital home, you need to learn as much as possible to ensure that your legal rights are protected at all times.

In some cases, one spouse wants to stay in the marital home while the other one has no problem moving. If this happens, you simply need an agreement that touches on all the finer details of the split.

Conversely, there are situations in which this is not nearly as cut and dry. For example, if children are involved, the person with physical custody may want to stay in the marital home. If this is in the best interest of the child, the court may agree that the spouse with custody should be permitted to stay in the home.

At our law firm, we know that marital home issues can quickly move to the forefront during a divorce case. You need to know the ins and outs of the law, while also focusing on what’s best for you and your future.

If you’re faced with divorce and have questions or concerns regarding the marital home, don’t hesitate to turn your attention to this detail. Consulting with an attorney will give you a clear idea of your rights, as well as the steps you should take as your case moves through the court system.
