Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Hi. I am an attorney and I will help you with your question today. Yes, a person in your situation can move out of the house with your children and not jeopardize your custody claim, as a general rule. That being said, it is advisable that before taking any action, you meet with a local family law attorney if at all possible to discuss the specifics of your situation. In no event should you leave the house without taking the children with you though, unless there are extreme circumstances like domestic violence.
I am seeing a message that you are not online anymore so I will switch from the chat format to the question and answer format but will continue to be available to you in that format despite the message that says that our chat is finished. Please don't rate my response until you've gotten all the information that you're looking for. When you're satisfied with my response, I'd be grateful for a positive rating.
