MIssouri .. I had purchased a home 2 1/2 years ago with my now former partner. Due to domestic violence I had to have an ex-parte against him. We are due to go into court for Assault charges. My question is this: Since he has been away from the house he has not made any of his portions of the house payment, he feels that the ex-parte relinquishes him from his part of the payment and I feel he is still liable we both signed the contract. I have made them on my own and had to obtain a part time job in order to accomplish this. What can I do to have him repay and continue to pay his half until we decide what to do with the house?
