Divorce And The Family Home
For millions of American households, the family home is the most valuable asset they own. Beyond the money, your house has years of memories contained in its walls. In divorce, the fate of the house can be one of the most emotionally charged issues the spouses must deal with.

There are several factors to consider when it comes to the family home. If you have young children, your first instinct may be to fight to keep the house and have your spouse move elsewhere. This is possible in many cases, but consider: Can you afford to make the mortgage payments on your own? Is your former spouse willing or able to help? Is the house in good condition? What is the real estate market like in your area?
