Except in cases where there’s domestic violence or a court order barring you from residing in your Brooklyn home, you have every right to occupy it, even if your spouse objects.
If you’re paying for two homes but neither spouse has decided to take action and file for divorce, the situation could drag on indefinitely.
From your spouse’s perspective, they have the place all to themselves while only footing half the bill for it, so it’s hard to see how resolving that is going to be a big priority for them.
When you do, matters of who pays for what and who lives where will be a top priority, and you may find that your financial picture begins to improve rapidly.
While no one wants to rush into divorce, if you’re in a situation where you can’t live in your home and are being impoverished by paying for it, this may be the best option available to you.
The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino offer free consultations so you can get an honest assessment of your current situation and how things would change if you filed for divorce.
