Sharing Rule:

In most cases, the party that has the strongest ties to the house can stay in the house after the divorce. Usually, this is the party that spent most time in the house. When the relationship only existed for a small number of years (1-5 years), the party who already lived there is assumed to have the strongest ties.


 


Explanation:

In most cases, the party that has the strongest ties to the house can stay in the house after the divorce. Usually, this is the party that spent most time in the house. When the relationship only existed for a small number of years (1-5 years), the party who already lived there is assumed to have the strongest ties. Parties can also choose to let the party that has the daily care for the children live in the house. This reduces the burden of the divorce for the children.

In case the house is property of the parties, the party that stays in the house usually gets full ownership and compensates the other party (half of the value of the house). She or he can seek to get a loan, but parties can be more creative as well.
