Dear Reader, Often a key issue in a divorce is what should happen with the marital home. Until the parties know where they and the children will be living post-divorce, it is hard to move on mentally and prepare for the next step. Having to relinquish the feeling of security that a home represents to both parents and their children is a loss that deserves to be mourned like any other. There are also many interrelated issues in a divorce which stem from the marital home such as: where will the children go to school after the move; how far apart will the parties be living from each other later and how does that distance impact parenting time; what will the new monthly budget be for one or both parties after the move; is there enough money to buy the other party out of their interest in the marital home, etc. Therefore, while the issue of the marital home is pending, these other considerations hang in abeyance often preventing the case from moving forward or settling sooner.
