We would all like to say, I want to keep everything I had before I began my divorce. Unfortunately that is not going to be the case. Equitable distribution starts with a premise that the division of assets should be equal between the parties. And if all you have is the car, the house, and a few other things in your marital asset estate it’s got to be divided in half.
However, that having been said, a house may be reserved for the residency of the children until they reach 18 if it’s in the best interest of the children, and if it’s financially feasible for the parties to continue to support the financial outline for that house until the minor children turn 18. Unfortunately, like many legal questions, the answer is, maybe.
