People also ask, can I rent an apartment while going through a divorce?
If you don't own your residence, you and your spouse have probably entered into a rental agreement (a "lease" or "leasehold"). A lease acquired during a couple's marriage is marital property, which is subject to division during a divorce. Even if the lease is in your spouse's name only, you may have a claim to it.
Beside above, what should you not do during separation? Here are some separation tips for men on what you should not do during your trial separation.
- Don't publicize it. Tell someone you are getting a divorce, and suddenly everyone has something to say.
- Don't move out.
- Don't maintain the status quo.
- Don't date just to date.
- Don't delay the inevitable.
Herein, can you rent an apartment with alimony?
While alimony is less common than it used to be, such payments are possible if you are not working. Get someone to co-sign the lease. Many apartments will allow you to rent without proof of income as long as someone else also signs the lease.
Can I kick my wife out if she is not on the lease?
You cannot simply force your wife out of your marital home. Even if her name was not on the lease, she has a right to reside there. You would have to legally evict her, and you cannot evict your Wife.
