Customer Question
If I am filing...

If I am filing for Divorce, do I have to stay at home until the divorce is final? In other words, if I move out before the divorce is complete, do I lose all rights to my things at the house?

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any papers in family court?

Nothing as of yet

Lawyer's Assistant: Family law varies by state. What state are you in?

Texas

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I will also seek custody of my daughter
