How Do You Decide Where to Live After a Divorce in San Diego

On Behalf of | Oct 3, 2021 | Divorce

There are several things California couples who are getting a divorce need to take into account when they consider where to live after a divorce in San Diego. You need to think about how convenient any new domicile will be in relation to your responsibilities as a parent and what their children’s needs will be as well as where you work.

Cost is obviously a consideration when you’re trying to decide where to live after a divorce in San Diego. You may need to qualify for a new mortgage in the future on a single income.  In most cases this can be a temporary situation while you manage the process of your divorce and work through all of the important issues of your divorce such as child custody and parenting time, issues of support, the division of assets and retirement as well as the potential division of business interests.

One of the first concerns is usually a location which preserves parenting options if you have children.  You will obviously need to be able to afford upkeep, taxes and other expenses associated with your new home.  Thinking about the purchase of a new house can provide stability for a person and for children after a divorce.

In some cases it may be necessary to rent for a few years. This may be a particularly good option if a person has children who have a few years of school left because they can remain in an area where it might be more financially challenging to buy a new home. Renting may also be a good option because it gives you a bit of a break from having to make any major decisions.

Are you planning to keep and live in the family home?  How will that affect property division during the divorce.  Your home may be only one of a number of items that are considered community property and that need to be divided in a divorce.

Deciding where to live after a divorce in San Diego can actually be a positive step as you move forward into the next chapter of your life.  You need sound counsel and advice to protect your goals and objectives and help you to lay the groundwork for life going forward.
