Debating child custody with a soon-to-be ex-spouse is never easy, and Florida parents will generally have a lot of legal questions about the issue. One of those frequently asked questions relates to moving out of the house. Indeed, when tensions are high, one parent may decide to move out of the house for the sake of having his or her own space, but what does this do to that parent's chance of winning custody of his or her children?
Unfortunately, it probably will affect the parent's chances of gaining custody of his or her children. The parent who leaves the family home -- even in cases where the parent had every good reason to leave -- could have less of a chance of getting custody in cases that are decided by a Florida court. This is because judges will generally view the act of leaving as that parent having less of a commitment to the children.
