Your Relationship Will Change – Not End

Should You Move Out During the Divorce?

Should You Move Out During the Divorce? Should I Move Out? Should They?

Every couple is completely unique and there is no one answer to the common dilemma of moving out during a divorce process. It’s a question we’re asked often, however, so we will offer a bit of insight.

Because the circumstances of your divorce, your relationship and your home are unique to you, we suggest you call our Corona office for a free consultation. We’ll give you our honest advice from a professional perspective.

Pros and Cons

In some situations moving out is the clear answer. For example, if your spouse has ever threatened to call the police or make a fake threat, you could falsely be charged with domestic abuse. If you don’t feel safe in your own home, or you’re not sure if you can control your anger or emotions around your spouse, move out.

Once again, there is no right answer for every couple, but here are a few things to consider:

  • Will the kids stay or come with me?
  • Will I be able to move back?
  • Will the locks be changed?
  • What about all my belongings?
  • Will I be abandoning my kids?

Even though it seems like a very personal matter, and it is, we highly suggest you speak with one of our experienced attorneys before making this decision. It can be critical to the outcome of your case.
