If you're planning to file for divorce, should you move out of the family residence? We're asking Austin attorney Sam Bassett for this Ask the Lawyers Quick Question.
I always tell clients that ask me that question, if safety is an issue and they're in fear for their safety... Yes, you need to move out. Strategically, sometimes it makes a difference if you are living in the home as to how things will be handled during the case, so I strongly advise if somebody has that question, they should talk to a lawyer before making the decision to move out, but remember, safety is the paramount concern, and if you're not safe, you need to move out.
