Questions Concerning Moving Out During Your Legal Separation

Questions Concerning Moving Out During Your Legal SeparationYou’ve decided to think things over in the relationship you have with your spouse instead of jumping into the divorce process. However, in doing so, you have decided that it might be in the best interests of everyone involved to move out so that you and your spouse can have your space. Living together might be causing you great stress, but there are also some consequences with choosing to move out. Today we want to answer your questions concerning this process and how you can handle it in the best way.

Moving Out: Should I or Shouldn’t I?  

Many people choose to engage in the rash decision of leaving before they are ready, and with this choice comes consequences. Today we want to answer some of your burning questions about moving out and whether or not it is a good decision.

If I move out, will I be able to claim the house when we go through the divorce process? You might be worried that the family home will now be your spouse’s if you make the decision to leave. If this is just a temporary decision that you are making until you come to a conclusion about the status of your marriage, you will still have a claim to the home because it was your primary residence. However, if you decide to separate for a long time, or permanently, you could lose this chance. This is why you want to be firm in your decisions.

Who is going to cover the house bills while I’m moved out? If there is a mortgage in both of your names or rent to be paid, you will have to pay your portion of it before you come to an agreement on your divorce so that you are being fair to your spouse. This is one of the reasons why it is important to discuss finances from the start, so that you have a better chance of gaining the results you want to see in your case.

Am I abandoning my children if I leave our family home? If you leave the family home, you might worry that your spouse will say that you abandoned your family and your children. If you are communicating and meeting with your children at visits, you will still have custody rights to establish in your case. If this becomes an issue and the communication lessens, you might run into issues.

If you are concerned about some of these issues as you go through a separation with your spouse, these are things that you can discuss before the divorce process (if you decide that it is for you.) We want to help you every step of the way when it comes to these aspects in your case, as we know that they are important to you.

Beyond impressed! I had been self represented through years of family law and child support court hearings and was so hesitant to hire an attorney out of fear and trusting that they would appropriately represent myself and child. After tons of research I contacted Ms. Azizi. I immediately was greeted by Lorenzo, the Office Administrator, who made me feel so welcomed and comfortable. He assisted in making communication seamless and effortless and walked me through each step of the process. Ms. Azizi heard my concerns and was extremely sensitive to the matter of FAMILY. The team did an amazing job with discovery and building a strong case that gave me confidence and I was successful in coming to an agreement with the other party, in what has yet to have been the easiest hearing of all, thanks to them. Ms. Azizi settled my case after years of stress and agony. I am grateful for finding the team and Ms. Azizi and definitely recommend them for any of your legal needs!

This law firm is the best! They have helped me so much with my Divorce and Criminal cases and I really wouldn't know what to do if I didn't have them to represent me. Lorenzo and Ro are awesome and are there to help at all times. My attorney was Mr.Edmondson and he has been amazing. This law firm is truly great and I will never go to any other one. Their responses are quick and will answer any questions you might have.

Seven stars. I had planned to put up my reviews after my final judgment but after the first hearing, couldn't wait, and I would write this whatever the outcome of my difficult case. Soheila was simply amazing in her arguments and strategy before the judge. I felt so taken care of. I chose her for her near-30 years of experience as an attorney, the depth and strength I observed in one who had weathered hardship through her many accomplishments, her compassion, and her smarts. I can't imagine what other attorney would have Zoomed with me even in sickness to help prepare me for a legal session. And I later saw how keen she'd been in her advice. I've been deeply touched watching Soheila and her paralegal Lynda Walker fight for my child as if he were their own. They in particular have treated me with great humanity - day and night from what I experienced at my former attorney's. Lynda is a gem, on her toes, flexible, hard-working, committed to each client, humble, and sweet. She has slaved over my case, doing much of the writing, watchful of me on paper and in person, guiding me gently while encouraging me to use my voice. The staff, including the office administrator Lorenzo and Linda C, is caring, respectful, and conscientious. A band of angels.
