Davina's Question: When two people file for divorce, is the man still ordered to put income into the joint account until the divorce is final?

Brette's Answer: When a couple files for a divorce, the court may put temporary orders into place that direct how their finances are to be handled while the case is pending. Generally, the court will create temporary spousal support which may include payments as well as responsibility for joint bills. But it depends on the case, and in some cases, the court may not do any of this.

※ Topic: Divorce and Mortgage Payments
Kristy's Question: My husband filed for divorce and left me stuck with the payments. I was the only one on the mortgage simply because I had a better credit score and we were able to get a better rate. In a community property state, isn't he still liable to pay at least half? Any ideas on what I can do?

Brette's Answer: You need to go to court and seek a temporary order about payments on the house while the case is pending. You need to see an attorney though to make sure this is done correctly and in a timely fashion.
