There is nothing unusual about spouses who decide to divorce but continue living together due to financial hardship.
They may sleep in different rooms and try to occupy separate parts of the residence to minimize conflict.
But such situations can be understandably tense and problematic.
If living together proves too difficult, one spouse may ask the court to award him or her exclusive possession of the residence.
Be careful not to engage in any abusive behavior that could lead to the filing of a Protection From Abuse (PFA) order, which may evict you from the home for up to three years and provide the other spouse leverage for getting the property as part of the divorce.
