Do I Lose My Claim On My House If I Move Out Before Filing For Divorce In Queens?

You won’t lose your claim on your house (or your share of its value if it is liquidated), or your ownership of it if it is separate property, but moving out before you file can cause problems in your divorce.

Your spouse may be granted exclusive occupancy of the house during the action, which may last for a long period of time, while you may be under orders to continue making payments on it even though you don’t live there.

Don’t take any action like moving out until you’ve consulted with an experienced Queens divorce attorney who can help protect you from financial hardship and make sure your property stays intact.
