Good afternoon. Can you please share with me a little more about the situation
If the home was bought during the course of the marriage, it would be considered a martial asset. As such, you would have a right to equity in it. While he can keep it and you can agree to it, he should then buy you out, since you are giving up your right to it. If he does not want to, you do not have to agree to allow him to keep it and can let the Judge decide.
