Greetings. He should not be doing this, but yes he “can.” My advice is to immediately speak with an attorney. If you wait too long, you will probably not have the finances to retain an attorney. At this point, when you are separating, you must assume that he is only worried about his interests and not yours. You cannot assume anything else.
Yes, he can take your name off, but if you have an attorney, you can ensure that he will provide you with support.
Don’t worry about the wait…the attorney can assure that you get your support, even if it is past due. Thank you.
