Once we get past these initial questions, the focus shifts to disposition of the home. Who will keep the house? Should one spouse buy the other out? Am I more likely to get the kids if I keep the house? Will we have to sell? How will the proceeds be divided? What if the home was owned by my spouse prior to marriage and I was later placed on title? What if I was never placed on title, do I have an equity interest? If we can’t agree on division, will the court make us sell? Can we keep the house until the kids turn 18 and then sell? What if I used my inheritance to pay down the mortgage or make improvements to the home?
