If I DO move out of my house, will the Court consider that “abandonment?”

 No, the concept of so-called “abandonment” is relevant only when a party is seeking a divorce on fault grounds (very rare.)  You have not committed “abandonment” simply by moving out of your house.

Whether or not it is wise for you to make a permanent move, however, is an issue that you should get legal advice on BEFORE you move.
