When a marriage sours, many people feel the urge to move out of the marital home and get some space to think things through and let their spouse do the same.
The problem is that if you’ve moved out and then make a claim on the house, your chances of succeeding in keeping it are reduced.
The same is true with child custody.
If you move out and leave your kids with your spouse, you are telling the court that your children are not your top priority and that your spouse is the appropriate custodial parent.
If you’re considering divorce, consult with an attorney before you make a move out of your residence.
At Friedman & Ranzenhofer, we can help you time your move in a way that won’t cost you in the divorce, but still gives you the space and freedom you need to start moving on in your life.
