Can I get reimbursed for fully supporting wife, kids, and all bills and needs (including mortgage, utilities, food and gas)?

Asked about 1 year ago - San Diego, CA

I have been fully supporting wife, kids, and all bills and needs (including mortgage, utilities, food and gas) while i wasn't living in house. Can I get reimbursed for any of this? I paid for everything since my wife does not work.

Additional information

What if I am continuing to pay after separation and before any settlement? I have not stopped even paying for their TV/Cable/Phone and cell phones either.

    Answered . Has a petition for divorce been filed? If not, then there isn't anything yet as to what you would reimbursed for. It is your responsibility to help support your children. If the wife doesn't work then that is a different story. You need to seek legal assistance.
