Q: Separated and haven’t filed yet, in-laws own marital home can they force me to move out ?
A: In short, the legal answer is most often, it depends. Eventually can they, yes. Immediately can they, that depends on the exact facts and circumstances. I'd suggest retaining a local attorney skilled in family law and working with them to resolve the matter in its entirety.
A: Hello. If your in-laws own the marital home, then that home is not an asset to the marriage and it will not be discussed in your divorce. They can't force you out based on you and their child getting a divorce. This is a great question to ask as it opens up some other questions related to long-term plans, your goals, and specific questions related to your living arrangement you and your spouse have with them. Wherever you are located in Alabama, it would be beneficial for you to speak with counsel so you can discuss all the facts of your situation. Best of luck and thank you for your question.
