It’s possible that in a final equitable distribution settlement, the house is distributed to you and you are entitled to regain possession of it by a certain date. There is no guarantee this will happen and will depend on the distribution and value of the remaining marital estate.
You may want to consider a mediation session with a certified family financial mediator to negotiate the issue of equitable distribution (marital property division) and any other issues you need to resolve in order to reach a full and final divorce settlement. Mediation tends to be very successful and is a much cheaper and less time consuming alternative to litigation.
