If I divorce my husband, can I move out and make him pay for my bills as well?
Question Details: I don't have enough money to live on; I'm on disability and only get $680 a month. I have nowhere to go. Can I make him pay my bills too. What are my options? I'm stuck and need help.
While the divorce is going on, you can--in the divorce case--ask the court on an "emergent" or urgent basis to order him to pay some expenses for you, but it is NOT guaranteed that the court will do so. For example, the court could conclude that you did not have to move out and increase your costs pending the divorce. Therefore, if you choose to move out an incur new costs, the family court would leave you to pay them yourself.
You can also get spousal support after the divorce, in an amount to be determined based on his income vs. yours, the life style the two of you led, etc.
Do NOT move out or do anything before consulting with a family or divorce law attorney to see what you may be able to get, when, and the odds of success; that way, you can make intelligent plans as to what to do.
