Many couples in Queens deal with a period of time between filing for divorce and one or both moving out of the marital residence, for a variety of reasons.
During that time, emotions are likely running high and opportunities to antagonize one another may be irresistible.
If you believe that your spouse is going through your belongings, or is a risk to damage or destroy your property, you can take steps to protect yourself and your things.
Protecting important papers, expensive goods, and sentimental heirlooms can be as simple as putting a lock on a door in the house, or as complicated as asking the court for an order of exclusive occupancy for the parts of the home that you are primarily using.
Your attorney can help you decide the best approach to fit your circumstances.
At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we help protect our clients while they’re still sharing a residence, and make sure the situation ends at the earliest possible date.
