The answer to this topic can be both a myth and a reality.
A spouse who leaves the house because of domestic violence, family violence or extreme conduct by their spouse will be at no disadvantage in requesting an award of the house. However, if both spouses can otherwise afford the costs of ownership of the home, the status quo of being in the home during the divorce can give an advantage to the spouse residing in the home. This is a huge consideration to keep in mind when the subject of child custody comes up.
