Somewhat of an involved story but I’ll try to be concise…
A year ago discovered my wife was having an affair. Tried to work on reconciliation but she kept going back. I moved out to our vacation home in July '10 at her request to give her space to work on us. Yeah, right…For the next six months she continued to see him. Discovered this in Dec '10 and we agreed to divorce. I’m still living in vacation home.
During the entire time, including the six months of our separation, I was paying ALL bills. She makes about $2500 net a month from Unemployment and Child Support from previous marriage. I make about $4000 net a month. She’s not contributed any to bills other than food/gas for the kids and her vehicle. I pay both mortgages, insurance, all utilities, etc. I’ve been increasingly going into debt doing this, but I thought it was to save our marriage.
Until we are able to hash out a SA, do I still have to pay all her bills? One reason I did up to this point was to avoid any abandonment issues. Everything is in my name. I have separated all accounts but our joint checking. She recently took money from that too leaving a zero balance but expects me to keep putting money into it to pay all the bills.
My other question, is when does accumulation of assets stop in regards to ED? If I’ve been moved out since July does ED take the worth of all accounts then? Or does it take it now from December as that’s when we agreed to divorce. I have a S-Corp sole ownership business and I don’t want continued accumulation of money from this company as I work my a$$ of to go to her in an ED…doesn’t seem fair.
Last question…Does the 1 year 1 day start from July or December? I moved out in July not with the intent to divorce, but she obviously wasn’t sincere in her reason for me moving out either.
When can I stop paying her bills
When does accumulation of wealth stop becoming shared property?
When does the 1 year 1 day time start?
Thank you so much
