Question: if i am the owner of the house do i have the right to live there when going to divorce
Answer: This question doesn't provide enough information to allow for a full and complete answer. Obviously, you are married and are going through a divorce. Is the home your sole and separate property? Is your spouse's name on the deed? Is your spouse's name on the mortgage? Under Arizona law, A.R.S. section 25-315, the Court issues a temporary order or preliminary injunction when a divorce is filed. That order limits what either party to the divorce can do in the way of selling, taking or borrowing property. If there is a dispute over who will live in the house pending the outcome of the divorce, either party may file a motion with the Court asking for a ruling on the issue. The best thing to do if the divorce is contentious is to speak with a lawyer and get legal advice specific to your situation.
