That is not necessarily a legal question as it is a financial question, which is why I always urge clients to consult with a forensic accountant, financial advisors, before they make any decisions about retaining major assets in a marriage. If you are thinking about retaining the house, and I understand that retaining a house is an emotional for everyone, you’ve got to make a determination of what do you think your income streams are going to be at the end of the marriage and will those income streams be able to support the house easily. You do not want to be house poor in the future because you’re building your new future and you want to have as much flexibility in your future as possible. You must look carefully. Seek out advice before you make that decision.
