What if I want the house, even though my spouse will be awarded custody of the child(ren)?

Courts are more likely to award the marital home to the spouse who will have custody of the children. Courts want to promote continuity and stability in children’s lives; divorce is disruptive enough. The following are a few reasons that the court may consider otherwise; you have an in house or attached office, you are handicapped and the house has been suited to meet your disabilities or the house has been in your family for many generations.
