I caught my husband in an affair in March of this year. His response was to move out without notice and serve me with separation papers the same day. He withdrew $5K from home equity loan and another $5K from savings. He immediately cut off financial income.
There is a 16 year old child still in the home and a 19 year old in college and we agreed to pay for. I just hit the 5th mortgage payment where he has not contributed anything nor has he contributed anything toward either child (the 19 year old was in summer school away from home and I paid all room, board and tuition).
- My friends say this is abandonment since there is a minor in the home?
- I was just told he called the bank and wants a meeting next week. Can I put a freeze on the account? Where neither of us can touch savings?
- My 16 year old has always had the expectation of going to college of her choice. When we get finished with this, can he refuse to pay for any of her college?
I do work and have already dipped into $10K savings to keep up mortgage and school payments.
Any comments appreciated.
