Pending Divorce Issues
When a couple is in the process of divorce, there are still a few pending divorce issues that may cause issues before the divorce is completely finalized. These include sharing the same home and child custody while the divorce is still pending. Contact our office and download our free New York family law guide to find out more.
Pending Divorce Issues | Sharing a Home
Choosing to remain in the same home is completely up to both parties if they can live with that situation. If being in the same house is manageable, both parties get along well enough and can handle it, it is recommended to stay there as long as possible. Sometimes people aren’t able to stay in the house because there is a lot of animosity and hard feelings between the parties. In that case, it’s okay to leave. Leaving is allowed and does not compromise any rights during the divorce.
Pending Divorce Issues | Child Custody
A common worry among divorcing parents is where the children will live while the divorce is pending. If both parties are living under the same roof, this issue is not addressed. In those cases, there will be a decision regarding where the child will live after the divorce. If, during the divorce, the parents live in separate places, there will typically be an agreement when each parent is going to see the children and when they are going to have time with the children.
Pending Divorce Issues | Length of a Divorce
A common question about divorce pertains to how long it can take start to finish. There is not a clear answer to this question because the length of a divorce can vary. It could be as short as two or three months or it could take up to two to three years. It all depends upon the complexity of your divorce, the issues that are present, and whether you and your spouse have the ability to come up with a quick resolution to those issues.
