It may indeed be true that home is where the heart is. Perhaps your heart resides squarely in the home that you and your spouse have resided in over the course of your marriage. If financial necessity, procedural necessity or a fundamental disagreement as to which spouse should remain in the house after your divorce is threatening your ability to reside in that home, you may understandably feel frightened, frustrated or even devastated.
We frequently write about the importance of processing any negative emotions or grief that you may be struggling with during divorce. By processing your emotions and grief in healthy ways, you will place yourself in the best position possible to obtain a fair divorce settlement and to move positively into your future. This same logic applies to the grief process associated with losing a marital home or fear of losing a marital home.
