What happens if both spouses want to keep the same marital property?

The first issue regarding the family home is often a determination of who will retain exclusive use and possession of the family home in order to keep the children in a stable environment. A court may award temporary use and possession of the family home during litigation, and then use and possession for up to three years following the entry of an absolute or a limited divorce. Additionally, a court may order the transfer of the house to one of the parties or order the house to be sold. It is important to discuss these options with your lawyer to determine which works best for you
