Should I Move Out Or Stay In The House?
A divorce sends shock waves through all aspects of a person’s life.
One of the first and most pressing questions that comes up at the start
of the process is, “Should I move out or can I keep my house?”
At the law firm of Anne E. Raduns, P.A., we understand that this is a life-changing
question. We will work with you to make certain that the consequences
of your decision are carefully considered. While the family home represents
a significant financial and emotional investment, the decisions made about
it also have an impact on other aspects of the divorce.
“Should I move out or can I keep my house?” will be one of
the first questions you ask us. We’re ready to answer it. Call us today at (352) 310-8235. Before we provide an answer to the question, though, we will take the
time to carefully review your situation. Some of the issues we will review include:
The Risk Of Domestic Violence
If you believe that you or your child is at risk of domestic violence from
your spouse, that will definitely impact the answer to the question, “Should
I move out or should I stay in the house?” However, you should not
feel bullied. If you want to stay in your home, we can help you obtain
restraining orders requiring your spouse to move out.
The Impact The House Will Have On Child Custody
Keeping the home provides a familiar place for your children. However,
sometimes moving out makes more sense. You may have to move for work reasons,
We will make certain that your
goals regarding child custody are carefully balanced with your goals regarding whether or not you should
stay in the family home. We’re here to look out for your best interests.
Your Ability To Afford The House
While your divorce is pending, we will help you address temporary spousal
support and temporary child support, as necessary. Moving forward, it
is important to understand how decisions regarding whether or not to keep
the family home impact
spousal support, child support and
property division. We will look at the big picture, including looking at your income and
how it relates to the costs of maintaining a household.
