If the property is the marital residence, you cannot force your husband to move without a court order. When you file for divorce, you can ask the court to give you the house and make the husband move out. Until then, you can't force him out.

What happens if one of us voluntarily moves out.

Expert:  Roger replied 7 years ago.
Nothing. It would not be considered abandonment unless you wait a year or longer before filing.
