Unfortunately, no, you can’t just put your spouse’s belongings on the lawn and lock them out if they’re resisting the divorce or refusing to move out once you’ve filed in Queens.
For many people facing a divorce, they fear that moving out may give the appearance that they aren’t an involved parent, or that they are willing to relinquish their claim to the house.
Or, your spouse may just be angry that the divorce is happening and want to do everything they can to make the process painful for you.
If your spouse has concerns about child custody or how the house will be handled in property distribution, those negotiations can begin right away, and stipulations made that can put their mind at ease.
If they are simply angry, getting the divorce going can usually make things plain that they’re fighting a battle they can’t win.
