Who moves out in a legal separation?

I don't want to move out.


Answer by  dolphin9 (195)

Final decisions will be legally determined by the separation contract. Guardianship of children and original ownership are factors that lead to not moving.

If it is a legal separation, who moves out is determined in the drafting of the separation. It is determined between the two of you.

The person who moves out is usually the person who initiates the seperation. However if the residence is in your name only you have the right to stay put.

In a legal seperation the courts will decide who has to move out. If you have children the parent with custody will get to keep the house.

In a legal separation, it is whichever individual who wants to move out. If neither individual wants to move, the legal basis is for the filer to move out.

There is not set answer to that. It's something you need to talk about. You and your spouse need to come to a conclusion of who needs to find somewhere else to go. Or you could each live in the home part time.
