Will my legal rights be affected if I move out of the family home?

Year Published: 2017

Generally a spouse will not be penalised for moving out of the family home in terms of the financial settlement. Although your legal rights are not affected by leaving the home, other factors may be affected. For example you are unlikely to have any control in the sale, your spouse may deny access and you have the expense of alternative accommodation.

If you are considering moving out of the family home it is always advisable to take legal advice from a specialist family solicitor first.
