Can My Spouse Refuse to Move Out During the Divorce?

Can My Spouse Refuse to Move Out During the Divorce?

One of the most common issues divorcing couples face during the ending of their marriage is who should move out, and when. Once you have determined you no longer want to be married, it can be difficult to live together, even for one more day. Oftentimes, couples argue over who gets to stay in the marital home, and in some particularly contentious situations, parties refuse to move out as a power move, simply to bother the other. This is obviously particularly more difficult when there are children involved, as you may not want to have your child witness such conflicts between the two of you.

The truth of the matter is, the courts cannot force someone out of their own home, unless there are proven acts of domestic violence. Whether one party refuses to admit the relationship is over, or cannot afford to move out, this can be an incredibly uncomfortable situation. Overall, in order to make any headway regarding your spouse’s refusal to move out, you will need to enlist in the help of a Pensacola family law attorney you can trust to protect you and your rights--such as ours at The Virga Law Firm, P.A.
