In a New York divorce, the family home's fate depends on whether it's considered marital or separate property. Marital property includes assets acquired during the marriage, while separate property consists of pre-marital or gifted assets. Separate property can become marital if not managed carefully.

Common options for the family home include selling it, one spouse buying the other out, or both keeping joint ownership with plans to sell later, often based on the children's ages.
