Can I get in any legal trouble if I decide not to pay anymore? My soon to be ex wife and I separated last September. We agreed that the best arrangement would be for me to stay with a friend and her to stay in our house until we either found a buyer or she was able to refinance. So far she has drug her feet in the process, and seems perfectly content with letting me pay half of the mortgage while she stays there. I am afraid if I stop paying half of the mortgage she could try to take me to court for spousal support or something along those lines. I feel like I am being taken advantage of. Also, in York county there is a law that you can't complete the divorce process until the house is sold, so her lack of motivation is putting that on hold as well. Please help!
Divorce is the process of formally ending a marriage. Divorces may be jointly agreed upon, resolved by negotiation, or decided in court.
Divorce is not the only solution to marital difficulties. Marriage counseling, legal separation, or annulment are other alternatives.
