Will I lose my house if I move out?
My husband wants a divorce and is making my home life a real nightmare. I feel like I would be safer if I go stay somewhere else while we each see attorneys. If I leave, will I be forfeiting the right to my half of our home?
No, if you vacate the home that you are living in due to personal reasons with your spouse, you will not be forfeiting any ownership rights that you have in your home. I strongly recommend that you consult with an experienced family law attorney about your situation and how best to protect your interests in your marital assets.
Do not sign any documentation concerning your marriage presented by your husband without an experienced family law attorney first reviewing the paperwork for you and giving you guidance. Failure to have an attorney review any presented paperwork before you sign could have a detrimental effect upon your interests.
If you feel safer living apart from your spouse, then you should do so.
