Should a parent move out of the marital home if they decide to file for divorce? Let's ask New York City lawyer Carla Barone for an Ask the Lawyers Quick Question.

Carla Barone:

Each case is really different. In cases involving violence in the home or a situation that it is just so unbearable to be in the home for the benefit of the children, then certainly getting involved in getting a quick resolution so everybody is safe is the most importance in the primary goal, but generally speaking, if all things are going along as business as usual and the parties just wanna separate, it is a good idea to, before doing so, to have a parenting plan in place when there are children in the home, so that everybody has expectations of when they will see the children, and so the children have expectations of when they're going to be at one another's home.
