Determining who gets to keep the home is a controversial process, as the home is commonly the most significant asset (and debt) of the parties. Usually, one of two things happens. Most often, the person who is still living in the home after the other moved out ends up getting the house. Alternatively, when minor children are involved, the parent with the most time with the children may be granted the home to decrease effects on children. When either of these happen, the other parent is often awarded more of the other assets in order to make sure that the division is equitable.
