Can I cancel cell service for my husband during divorce proceedings?

Question Details: I work for a cell phone company and as a benefit I have a cell phone account under my name and my name only. I am in the process of divorce and I had to shut off my ex's cell phone due to non payment on his part. I did not take his phone just cut off the service as it was jeopardizing my credit and credibility with my employer. My ex is telling me that I can't do this during divorce proceedings, that I can get in trouble, is this true? I didn't take the phone I cancelled the service so that the debt does not go any higher.
