If you have decided to divorce, why would you wish to stay in the home? Doesn't that present a complication of matters if she does not want you there?

If your wife has filed for divorce, you may not be legally entitled to be in the home. There could be a temporary order that orders you out of the home and carries sanctions for contempt of court if you violate it. Other things that may be set forth in a temporary order are custody and specific visitation dates and times for you. If the divorce has not been filed or if filed but no order prohibits your return, you would then be entitled to return to the home, however such a stay may not be in anyone's best interest.

You may want to consider employing the services of an attorney to prepare and file the divorce on your behalf prior to your arrival in order to have more control over language in the temporary order.
