This is one common outcome in divorce. Judges understand the importance of stability in a child’s life, especially as they become teenagers and the importance of their social development grows.
If there is a viable plan on the table to retain a home as a residence for the custodial parent and the children, judges are usually open to the idea.
If your spouse simply disagrees, a trial may be required, but a sound plan to keep the house so that the children can come first can still be very persuasive.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino develop these types of proposals for clients every day, protecting assets that matter because their kids have priority over the difficulty of divorce.
