Family Law: Separation and Division of Property Question
So my ex and I have been married for 1 year and 4 months and he has been out of the home for 4 months now after problems in our marriage which I won’t go into. In that time I have been paying 100% of the mortgage and household bills. He has been out of a job for over a year and has just recently been offered his third temp job which starts next week. The other temp jobs “feel through”.
Today he phoned me and said that he will be moving back in tomorrow because our home is easier for him to get to from here by bus / LRT than his parents place and says that he will contribute to the mortgage in about a month after he starts earning some money. So basically I have to have him here in a small condo for a month while he’s not contributing??? There has to be some legality that he just can’t move back in here when he pleases and pay nothing until he can. I should also add this is the 3rd temp job he’s had in less than a month so there isn’t even a guarantee that this will last.
On top of paying for all the bills and the mortgage I just can’t afford thousands of dollars for a lawyer right now and make too much for legal aid……and this just doesn’t seem right. Can he move back in, contribute nothing, even though his name is on the mortgage?
Thanks for your input.
