As an experienced Bergen County Divorce Attorney, a lot of clients ask me whether they should leave or stay in the home pending a divorce. In my opinion, that is a function of whether or not there are children present. It’s also a function of the financial situation at the time between you and your spouse. If there are children, I never recommend leaving the residence until there is a game plan as far as a visitation schedule or custody arrangement. Financially you want to make sure that it is affordable to maintain two separate households.
Are you going through a divorce and wondering if it’s a good idea to stay in the same home until your divorce ends? Let our experienced Bergen County Divorce Attorneys help you.
