Want divorce from my drunk husband, maybe a wake up call – I want to stay in our house due to kids/school. What do I do?
A: You would to file a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage. In the petition ask the court to award you the family home and the reasons that you need to have the marital home awarded to you. This may depend on whether or not you will be able to keep the mortgage current with your income alone or your income with spousal maintenance from your husband. The marital home is usually easy to obtain if your financial budget allows such, but you may have to hold your husband financially harmless from any liability of the mortgage.
