My Spouse Filed For Divorce And Kicked Me Out Of Our Home in Queens. What do I do now?

First, you should know that barring a court order to the contrary, your spouse can’t kick you out just because they’ve filed for divorce.

Whether you agree to move or remain in the residence is your decision to make, and there can be significant consequences to you if you choose to leave prematurely.

Walking away from the residence without a fight may impact custody decisions, and even how property matters are ultimately decided.

Based on your spouse’s current reactions, it is likely that you’re facing a difficult divorce that will require skillful handling.

Your first course of action should be to speak to an experienced Queens divorce lawyer about your housing situation and your immediate term needs, then begin strategizing for the long haul.

The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino can protect you from the worst of a bad divorce.
