His lease is in my name


The only way I could get my stbx to move out was to rent him an apartment before we separated. The apartment is now leased in both our names, but he has no job. He’s been using our split savings to pay the rent but he has not yet paid rent for November. The apartment company said that we could get me off the lease but that we BOTH have to sign a roommate release form, and then he has to either qualify on his own or find a guarantor. If he does neither, he would be evicted.

Is there any recourse for me here or am I stuck with the lease?


You could attempt to have a court require that he singe the roommate release in a motion for interim distribution.
