Divorce and options regarding a family home

11675918_S.jpgFew words stir up as many feelings, emotions and memories as the word home. For most people, home is the place where they feel the most comfortable and happy and where they spend time with the people in their lives who mean the most. For parents, home is the place where a child took his or her first steps and experienced many other firsts. Given the significant place that a family home holds in the hearts of many people, it's no wonder that divorcing couples often struggle when it comes to figuring out what to do with a family home.

11066284_S.jpgIn any divorce, money is bound to be a central issue--with each spouse wanting to ensure that he or she receives a fair share. However, before any decisions can be made about who gets what and how much of it, all assets and debts must be accounted for. In cases where a spouse isn't completely honest about the value of certain assets or outright attempts to hide assets, the divorce negotiation process can stall and quickly become contentious.
