Where Will My Kids Live After a Divorce? This depends entirely on the custody order and parenting plan put in place by the court. There are a variety of different custody scenarios, but to some degree in most situations the kids will be living in both parents’ new homes. This can range from spending just a night or two a month at your ex-spouses’ home to spending half of their time with the other parent. This situation can be made easier if the parties are flexible with each other, if the parties live nearby each other, and if the parties choose to share clothing, toys, etc., between their homes.
Where Am I Going to Live After a Divorce?
Many husbands and wives worry about where they will live after a divorce. In most instances, one of the two parties will stay in the marital home during and after a divorce. However, in some cases, neither party will be able to stay in the home without the financial contribution of the other party. If alimony is not a realistic option for your case, then you may be looking at moving. If that is the case, then many parties choose to move in with another family member for a little while to save some money or they move directly to a cheaper home or an apartment. If none of these are options then in the rarest of circumstances, if the parties get along well enough, then they actually choose to continue living together after the divorce until they can afford to separate. If your divorce has recently been filed, then it is always a good idea to start looking for affordable housing in your desired neighborhood, even if you think you will be allowed to stay in the marital home.
Can I Move After a Divorce?
Once a divorce decree is put in place, parents in Missouri must follow very strict requirements when relocating their new home, even if they are relocating within St. Louis. It is critical to follow the requirements, which include advanced notice to the other parent, as courts can order you to move home or even award more custody to the other parent if you move without following the Missouri relocation laws.
