In cases where neither spouse has chosen to move out before filing, who gets to live in the marital residence is usually a point of contention from the start.
A spouse who plans to keep the house may pursue an order from the judge for exclusive occupancy, though judges usually won’t agree to make the other spouse immediately homeless unless there’s domestic violence or threats.
We find that spouses usually have a reason for not wanting to leave prematurely, such as a fear that they’ll be seen as abandoning children or any claim on the house.
When it doesn’t, the attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can help get the outcome you need.
