Abandonment


#1

This maybe a stupid question but, here goes. If the wife leaves the main house that they share is it considered abandonment? I plane on moving back to my home state…( he works here)


#2

Abandonment is a term that lawyers like to throw around, however the term doesn’t carry much weight anymore, and will not effect the outcome of your property distribution or spousal support claim.


#3

Is this also true if the husband moves out and still pays the mortgage and utilities?


#4

Yes.
