You should receive a portion of your husband’s retirement account, which was earned during the marriage, some spousal support, and child support if you are the residential parent. The other issues regarding the house, the mortgage, and trading one interest for another will depend on either you are working out a settlement with your husband or getting the judge to order such an arrangement. I strongly suggest you consider divorce mediation to resolve the outstanding issues and to make sure the agreement is legal and binding.
