Divorce And Property
Divorce and custody issues in family law are not always clean and easy. Unfortunately for some parents who are getting separated, ownership of property or any assets tend to be used as leverage against the other person. The concept of ownership comes along with a sense of entitlement about being able to call the shots. What this translates into for our purposes here are instances where one party that owns the house that the family lives in, demanding the other party that doesn’t own the house to leave following the removal of their property. Other property such as vehicles or other properties that the two of you may or may not share ownership of can come into play as well. Here are a couple things that can help you if you’re going through a case such as this.
- What Does The State Have To Say About This? Odds are, you’ll be going to court about the divorce or custody issue you’re having with your soon-to-be ex. If your ex is trying to kick you out of the house and you don’t know what you can do about it, the best course of action is to seek out a lawyer who can advise you on the next sensible choice. If this isn’t the most financially feasible option for you to take, there are other ways to go about this. Locating a legal library and looking up all the information you need to go to court over this issue is a great way to make the most of your time and resources. The internet can be a great tool to use to get the information you need to represent yourself and get your story into the hands of the judge. The bottom line is to find out what your rights are. Once you find out what you are capable of doing, within the limits of the law, then you can start putting a plan of action together.
- Reasonable Requests. Some states frown on people who force the mother or father of their child out of the house. If you think about it, it doesn’t look good to in court to kick your husband or wife out of the house, put their stuff on the curb and go to court making a case for you to have full custody; it would have to be a pretty extreme case for this to happen anyway. What’s best for the child, in a usual circumstance, is for both parents to be in their lives in one form or another and a judge’s decision will most likely reflect this. That being said, forcing the mother or father out of your child’s life is a last resort and should be reserved for a desperate situation. Obviously if the other parent is involved in criminal activity, is mentally unstable or is bordering on abandonment, this might be a necessary course of action. If you’re in a situation where you’re thinking about kicking your husband or wife out of your home for reasons of your own and you’re trying to make a case for full custody, think about how this will view in the court room before you do anything rash.
What you should keep in mind is that most situations can be resolved if you simply talk it out. If it comes to it, get somebody to serve as a mediator between you two so a verbal argument doesn’t ensue. Let each of you voice your concerns, why you’re angry, what you think is best for the children, what’s influencing your decisions etc. Once this stuff is on the table, then you can start arranging it in such a manner as to allow everyone to get the best possible outcome from the given circumstances.
