Thursday Divorce Thoughts:   04122018

Today’s Topic:  How to Get Your Spouse Out of the House.

1. Domestic violence. If there is a case for domestic violence, bringing an action and asking for an injunction for protection is the fastest path to bouncing your spouse from the house. There are risks with this – because if it backfires and you don’t get the injunction, your soon-to-be ex will feel emboldened and things could get worse.  So if you choose this route, you better be sure it will work.

2. In a Divorce Action:  In the divorce action, you can ask the judge to award you exclusive occupancy.  If there are kids involved and you can prove it isn’t great for the kids to have you both there, that will help.   It will also help if you can show that your spouse has another place to go and that another spouse can easily be afforded.

3. Simply changing the locks. This is not the preferred method and can be a crapshoot. The cops might allow your spouse back in – and the judge may look upon your “self-help” method unfavorably. But certainly this is your choice to take this option at your own risk.
