And the car is with you. If the loan and title are in your name you are responsible for the payments. You incurred the marital debt as well. If you are not on the loan, don't pay it. Let the car get repossessed. That will teach him! But if you need a car to get to work, then you need to pay for it. if you are awarded the car in the divorce, you will also be awarded the loan.
The car was bought during the marriage that we both paid the loan on...marital expense. Simple. We only had 1 car as well and shared it. He is now borrowing a friend's car by his own choice. That should not let him out of a marital debt that he incurred.
Nope. He is liable for the credit cards that are ONLY in his name. You are both liable for the credit cards that are in BOTH your names. Apparently you were living above your means.
The credit cards are in both our names and used for marital property/expenses. Again, another bill he is liable for.
Nope. The utilities are expenses necessary to allow you to take a shower, flush the toilet, cook, keep warm or cool (whichever is appropriate for the weather), wash clothes, watch tv, type on the computer and do various other things. It has little to anything to do with the value of the house.
The utilities are all expenses to keep up the value and maintenance of the house that we own together...just like the mortgage.
Time to cut back. It is NOT his responsibility to support you when you are divorcing.
I didn't say I can't pay for groceries or my cell phone. I said that I can't pay for EVERYTHING.
Parents should remember 3 things: Love your kids more than you hate your ex; when you have children the relationship with the other parent is until death; your children determine what type of nursing home you end up in.
Nothing stated by me should be taken as giving you legal advice or forming an attorney/client relationship.
