Who should stay in the house during your divorce?

For some couples in Alabama, the marital home is their most valuable assets. For other couples, it’s their biggest source of debt. Either way, deciding what to do with the martial home during a divorce is not a decision that should be taken lightly.

Additionally, many families have strong emotional attachments to their homes that can render decision-making even more difficult. Here are a few tips to consider that may help you decide what to do with your home while your divorce is pending.

When deciding what to do with the home during the divorce process, find a solution that will work for your unique situation. If you still get along with your ex and are trying to save money, it might be a good idea to both remain in the home until the divorce is completed and you find a more permanent solution.

In cases where living together during the divorce isn’t feasible, one spouse may decide to stay in the home with the children while the other spouse finds another place to live. Alternatively, the children could remain in the home with the parents taking turns residing there.
