  • When one spouse is earning money and paying for the home, separating might mean the couple would need two sources of income. It can sometimes work out better if they can both remain in their residence as they go through the divorce.
  • The issues are very fact-specific, however. If, because of domestic violence or some other reason, you simply cannot live with your spouse, you must find alternate solutions.
  • Think it through and decide how you will go forward when you first meet with your attorney. If you couldn’t spend five minutes with this person before you decided to get divorced, the added pressures of divorce can turn life into a nightmare.
  • Although people sometimes stay with friends or families, if there are children, I recommend staying as long as you can so you can spend as much time as you can with them, even if you have to move into the basement or extra bedroom.
