Should I Move Out: Pros and Cons
Moving out does have its advantages in some circumstances. For instance, if your spouse has ever hinted at calling the police on you — moving out could prevent you from being hit with a false allegation of domestic abuse. Similarly, if the two of you are not getting along and tempers flare regularly, moving out might be the best way to prevent one momentary loss of self-control from costing you your right to maintain a meaningful role in your children’s lives for some time to come.
Some of the questions that people are concerned about in making a decision to move out of the family house are:
- Should I leave the children or take them with me?
- Have I abandoned the children or the home by leaving?
- Can I move back in?
- Can he/she change the locks?
- What about my stuff?
Making a decision of whether or not you should move out can be critical to the ultimate outcome of your case. DO NOT take such a step without conferring with a competent, experienced family law attorney beforehand.
