Is it ok for me to leave the house if I am getting divorced?

With regard to the home itself, it is ok to leave the home during your divorce, as the spouse that moves out does not give up any marital interest, and it is not abandonment per se. However, if there are children involved, moving from the home can have a huge effect on the custody case, and no decision to move out should be made without first consulting with a divorce attorney.
