Updated: May 12

Your spouse cheated on you and now you want them gone. Listen to my podcast below, I go into more in depth detail than just what is provided in this article. Please subscribe to my YouTube Channel so you can hear other podcasts where I have a deep discussions covering many aspects of family law, family violence, the psychology of abusers and ways to help victims heal.

Discovering that your spouse has been unfaithful is a devastating experience that can leave you feeling betrayed, angry, and unsure about the future of your marriage. If you decide to file for divorce, you may not want to continue living under the same roof as your soon-to-be ex-spouse. In Texas, there are legal options available that can help you protect your safety, well-being, and living situation during this difficult time.

One such option is commonly referred to as a "kick-out order." This is a court order that can exclude your spouse from the marital residence while the divorce is pending. Kick-out orders can be obtained through various legal mechanisms, including:

1. Temporary Restraining Orders (TROs): A TRO is an emergency order that can be granted without notice to the other party. It can include provisions that prevent your spouse from entering the marital home or coming within a certain distance of you and your children.

2. Temporary Orders: During a temporary orders hearing, the court can decide who will have exclusive use of the marital home while the divorce is pending. The judge will consider factors such as the safety and well-being of both parties and any children involved.

3. Protective Orders: If you or your children are experiencing family violence, you can apply for a protective order. If granted, a protective order can exclude your spouse from the marital home and prohibit them from coming near you or contacting you.

It's important to note that you should not attempt to "kick out" your spouse through self-help methods such as changing the locks or physically removing them from the home. Doing so could have legal consequences and may negatively impact your case in the eyes of the court.

Instead, it's crucial to work with an experienced family law attorney who can guide you through the legal process and help you obtain the necessary court orders to protect your rights and interests.
