I am sorry you are having to deal with this. That can be a very tough experience to go through. Yes, a person may remain in the house so long as there are not protective orders, and provided the court does not issue an order granting the other spouse the exclusive use and possession of the family home. Normally that is only issued upon request and if the financial situation allows for the spouse to secure alternate housing. Some couples will reside together until the divorce is final, due to the expense of maitaining 2 homes, but this tends to work best when it is an amicable divorce.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
