Should I move out?A divorce can be one of the most trying times in a person’s life. There are already many emotions involved, which can only be heightened if there are children. The experienced attorneys of Spooner and Associates want to help you through this trying and difficult time, providing the necessary knowledge and resources to help you navigate it successfully.

Many clients ask us whether or not they should move out of the marital home before a divorce. This can be a very complicated question, with different answers depending on the situation. For example, a major determining factor is whether there are minor children. Moving out of the home while the children remain with the other parent can have a serious impact on the outcomes of child custody, both physical and legal, as well as visitation and child support. Other factors involved in the decision to move out of a marital home include: whether the home is owned or rented, who’s name the home is titled under or leased under, who has been paying the financial obligations on the home (including rent, a mortgage, fees, and taxes, and utilities), as well as what each party wants to do with the marital home after the divorce. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, if one party is concerned about domestic violence, leaving the home for safety purposes may supersede all other issues.
