When going through the divorce process our home, the home the children and I were left in felt like a refuge. Our worlds had been turned topsy turvey and it was a huge comfort to go “home” to familiar surroundings. Our home kept us grounded. My youngest was especially attached. His friends lived within doors of his front door and his friends were a great comfort to him during that period.
I wanted to stay in the home until my youngest graduated from school. I knew though that I couldn’t afford to and that my soon to be ex was in no position financially to help. Knowing the burden it would be on both of us to maintain two homes I chose not to ask for the home during our settlement negotiations.
