Question #18: My husband and I are talking about a divorce. I live in the Metro NY area. This divorce is of his asking. What can I do, prior to talking with a lawyer to help me secure the house and custody of the children?

Answer:
Unless there is physical abuse present, do not move out of the house or leave the children for extended periods ( i.e. days) without first having an understanding in writing about the future ownership of the house or custody of the children. I strongly urge you to consider mediation and give me a call at 212-370-1660 to discuss the matter in greater length.
