From Love Nest to Infest… Complications When Moving and Divorce

Moving Out

Courteney Cox, of Cougartown fame, has allowed her fiance’, Johnny McDaid, to move into her Malibu house according to the July 14, 2014 edition of People. In that same edition, People reports the story of the “nightmare nanny” who won’t leave the home of the family who hired her to care for their children. The family must now evict her which, in California, is “quite a lengthy process”.

Suppose your lover moves in with you in the house you’ve owned (or rented) for years but then refuses to leave when he tires of you?

What happens if your spouse refuses to leave your home even though the two of you are no longer a couple?

In Louisiana, the answer to the question will depend on the facts of your relationship – not the romantic one – but the other one, the legal one.

Was your lover paying part of the rent?

Was he helping with expenses in exchange for living in your house?

Does your husband or wife have the ability to move elsewhere?

Are there children involved?

Whether you are the evicter or the evictee, you need to speak with a lawyer about your rights once the romance is over and you are ready for a divorce.

My journey with Mr. Cosenza began nearly 3 years ago when I contacted him about divorce proceedings. During our initial consultation he told me exactly what to expect and we discussed cost, which I thought reasonable.

I would like to start by saying I am from TX and my ex wife tried to file a judgment in LA. I contacted a number of lawyers that explained to me that this maybe a process that they could look into.
