Both you and your husband have a right to remain in the matrimonial home until the terms of your separation and divorce are resolved. If your intention is to remain in the home for the long-term (ie. you wish to buy out your husband’s interest in the home), then I would recommend that you remain in the home, unless there is a threat to your safety or the safety of the children. Another consideration to keep in mind is that if the home is jointly owned and you were to leave, you ​may still be responsible for 50% of the household expenses if you are to share in any post-separation increase in equity in the home. I strongly advise that you speak with a lawyer about your situation in greater detail and how to move this matter forward.
