Divorce Attorney Discusses Spouses Living Together
As a proficient New Jersey Divorce Attorney, I often get questions from clients about couples still living together when they are going through the divorce journey. During your journey to divorce, you and your spouse may decide that it’s practical to continue to live in the same home. If there is sufficient space and one of you is upstairs and one is downstairs or you’ve already moved to separate bedrooms, it is quite possible to go through this journey of divorce, living under the same roof. It affords you both the same opportunity to continue to enjoy the marital home, you don’t have the added expense of paying rent or a mortgage in a separate home while the case is pending. Also it really does allow you to both maintain the standard of living during the pendency of the divorce. However, if there is acrimony or if there’s any hint of domestic violence, that type of arrangement is just not going to work for your family and you need to consider how you are going to separate while you are continuing to go through your journey.
