The success of your divorce settlement often depends directly upon how your matrimonial home is handled from the outset of your separation.
Understanding your rights in the matrimonial home early is crucial to ensuring that a fair division of property occurs, and your child custody rights and your position on child or spousal support are secure.
Resolution of the major issues in a divorce case, including child custody, spousal support and property division, can often flow directly from who has possession of the matrimonial home, usually the family’s largest asset, at the time of separation.
