My soon to be ex and I have been separated for a little over a year. At the time of separation our debt included a car payment and our mortgage. I assumed both since he was unemployed at the time. We are now in the process of going through equitable distribution. I have decided that I cannot afford to keep the home. I think that it will take a while to sell the home. My questions are the following:
Will I get credited for the principal that I have paid since separation?
What about insurance/taxes on the house? Do I get credit for those as well?
What about going forward while the house is on the market? I assume that I have to assume all of the debt since he still can’t afford to pay?
