If you are filing for a
divorce, you do not necessarily have to move out at any point. You can complete
the divorce process while remaining in your home. After property division
is divided and divorce matters are decided, the court will be the one
to decide who remains in the family home. Due to the emotional tensions
that can be involved when filing for divorce, one spouse may want to move
out. There are several factors that should go into this decision and it
is advisable that you do not just offer to move out without temporary
orders in place. When in the position of filing for divorce and determining
if someone should move out, you need to consult with a divorce lawyer
in California prior to taking action.
The situation will be different if your spouse has filed an order to show
cause asking for possession of the residence.
Some reasons that this might be granted, forcing you to move out, include:
- Physical abuse has occurred to anyone in the household
- There is a restraining order in place
It may be more beneficial for you and your spouse to discuss the best situation
where you can live separate. Take into consideration who can keep up the
home, who can afford to move out, who can take care of the children, etc.
