If you want to retain the home you’ve been living in, and your spouse agrees with your decision, then there’s only the matter of determining how the division of that piece of property impacts the overall settlement.
If you and your spouse can’t come to terms about the future of the home, then eventually the court will intervene.
In the worst case scenario for someone wanting to keep the marital residence, the settlement the court develops would include orders to liquidate the home and split the proceeds between the spouses.
In short, if there’s an asset you want in a divorce, you need to be willing and able to negotiate.
