Since the children are so young, if you were selected by the court as the residential parent, the court would allow you to remain in the marital home until the youngest child reaches majority, which is 18 years of age. Whether your husband would be required to pay for the mortgage and taxes would depend on your relative incomes. If he has been and continues to be the sole provider then he will be required to provide not only child support but some form of spousal support to you as well until you are able to get on your feet and acquire the professional skills to become self-supporting.

In mediation and you’ll be able to resolve these issues together with your spouse and the quiet of my office instead of having to spend hours a sitting in the courtroom corridors and having a judge impose a settlement upon you .court.
