Yes, if you have older children, the judge in your divorce is likely to be very open to a plan that allows for retention of your house or apartment until after your kids have graduated high school and moved out.
This is a common scenario which meets several of the priorities of divorce judges, namely that this is a plan that puts your kids’ education and social development first, while providing the court with a negotiated settlement, which may mean that no trial phase is required.
If you and your spouse can agree to solutions like this, then your divorce may be a much easier and more cost effective proposition than you expected.
