Question: I caught my husband cheating and I don't want to leave my house after I divorce him. He should leave because he's a cheater. I need somewhere to live with my daughter and my special-needs son and I think we should stay in the house.
I discovered my husband's cheating from text messages and photos of his junk he sent that were obviously intended for a girlfriend or mistress. When I confronted him about why he was sending pictures of his junk to someone, he said he was sending them for analysis to his doctor. I thought he was lying so I did more investigation and I found he wasn't sending nude pics to his doctor, but to a woman who's a server at a restaurant in Alpharetta who I'm sure never went to medical school.
Now that he's busted having an affair (to a lady who really looks like a man, I think) I want to make sure me and our kids get to stay in the house. And I want to keep our special needs son at Blessed Trinity High School because he's comfortable there and stays out of trouble. And I want to make sure that my daughter, who's very sensitive and anorexic, isn't harmed by her cheating, jerk father.
I want to know about what can happen to our house because I want a divorce and I want to keep the house and I want him to move out as soon as possible. He can move in with his slutty waitress girlfriend and her drug dealing mother who got arrested for opioid possession (which I found out from a private detective I hired).
My mother told me I shouldn't marry him and my father said he was untrustworthy, but I foolishly married him anyway. I think I just did it to get married because my best friend was planning her wedding and it looked fun and romantic. Now I need an Alpharetta divorce lawyer and some advice.

Answer: What happens to the house in a divorce is a common question. For many people their home is their largest financial asset. And for people with children, it becomes important to help ensure that the kids are comfortable and do not have to relocate from their home during a stressful period.
Generally speaking, the issue is handled in three possible ways. The marital home is sold and the profits/equity is divided between the parties. Or, one side buys-out the other side. Of course we have handled the issue in other ways as well, but those three resolutions are often the most frequently used.
