The importance of the matrimonial home in a divorce

If you and your spouse are divorcing and there are many matters that need to be sorted out. Couples that own a house together may not be aware of how important that asset is in the determination of other things related to the divorce. For most couples a house is the biggest asset they own together and while some may not think twice about moving out, others going through a divorce believe it is important to hold onto the house—particularly if children are involved.  

While the reason behind that belief may just be that they want their children to be able to remain in the home where they grew up, the reality is there is an even more important why being in possession of the matrimonial home is a good idea. In some cases, being in possession of the matrimonial home can be a big factor in securing a good settlement regarding matters such as the division of property, spousal support, child custody and child support.
