The family home is usually their most valuable asset. When a couple divorces, there are three possibilities: The wife buys the husband's interest; the husband buys the wife's or they liquidate and split the proceeds.

Also, "any property" includes vacation homes, rental or investment homes, all real property owned by either spouse.   Remain Rational – Ask Questions, Agree on Answers Who wants the house? Can either of you afford it in your new financial situation? Is it just your family home or one spouse's ancestral home? What is it worth?

A family divorce doesn't have to be a totally negative event. Your children deserve a childhood free from animosity and resentment, and you need to work to make that happen. Remember, each child is different, they'll react to divorce individually. You must discern each child's problems and deal with the problems, not the symptoms. Don't make assumptions, talk to your children, and to professionals, if needed.   Lay the Groundwork During the Process Some will say there isn't a right time to announce your divorce, they're wrong.
