My wife has asked for a separation and wants me to get a place. I have signed a lease and have started purchasing things to make it habitable for me and our two children but still live in the marital residence until we can sign a separation agreement. She has pulled all of her income out of the joint account and refuses to pay for any expenses occurred in setting up the new residence. I feel like the purchases are all marital property until we divorce and should be paid in proportion with our two incomes. Who is right?
Also, she is only willing to pay household expenses according to a ridiculously imaginary and one-sided proportion dreamed up by her attorney.
What recourse do I have while I am still in the house and my names are on the bills?
