You are here:

When a couple begins separation or divorce planning this question is at the forefront of many people’s minds. However, the question is not simple to answer. Many factors will influence the decision about who stays in the home you’ve been living in together: such as where the children will live, whether you are renting or own the home (with or without a mortgage) and each person’s money situation.

People in this situation often need separation advice to ensure they plan their future lives in a constructive way, and our expert family mediators can help. You can book an appointment here.
