While it’s possible that the financial details of your divorce could create that result, the truth is that judges have a strong interest in promoting stability for children in a divorce, and you have a good chance of winning this particular argument.
It may seem to make sense to your spouse that disposing of the house and splitting the proceeds will be the cleanest and quickest solution to the dealing with the property, but it’s possible to structure a home sale at a later date.
This would let your kids stay in their schools, with their friends, and in a secure environment.
The home can be sold when your youngest turns 18, leaves for college, or some other contingency.
