When contemplating divorce, it’s important that you don’t act rashly and that you take the necessary steps to protect yourself.
In matters of property, if you and your spouse own your home together and you move out before filing, the court may award exclusive occupancy to your spouse, while ordering you to continue paying your share of the expenses of the house, as well as your new home or apartment.
In child custody, a judge may take your moving out as a sign that you have abandoned your children, or at the very least, that you have endorsed your spouse’s role as primary caregiver to your children.
In both cases, acting imprudently now can have a big impact on how your divorce case plays out.
Your best option is to sit down with an experienced Buffalo divorce attorney and work out the best strategy for moving forward, and on with your life.
