Once a spouse has decided to divorce, there are certain things which he or she must do to ensure that the legal process of divorce is smooth. An experienced divorce lawyer or family law lawyer can provide invaluable advice on how to make a divorce process smooth. A major decision that can’t be put off for long is who will live where for the time being—that includes the spouses and the children.
Generally the spouses figure out temporary living arrangements during a separation, putting off final decisions until the divorce process is further along. If the spouses manage to do this, they should write up an agreement about what they have decided. What if they cannot agree? In most cases both spouses are equally entitled to stay in the family home than the other. When you are the legal owner of the house, then you might be able to make you spouse move out, though it would depend on factors like how long you have been staying in the house together, who pays for the expenses, and the like.
