    Answered . Yes, you have rights. You should hire an experienced divorce attorney to file a motion to ask the court to apportion the bills on a temporary basis while the case is pending. It sounds like you are giving her little incentive to do anything as long as you are continuing to pay for all of the bills even though you are moved out of the house.
