He is either in debt or has a new girlfriend. You need to understand that he is beyond reasoning now. You need to see a lawyer, and move to have your support and home taken care of. Do you need child support?
You need an order from the court requiring him to pay the mortgage and other expenses.
Your state may require him to pay the expenses of your lawyer since you are not a wage earner.
Mr. Sarno is licensed to practice law in NJ and NY. His response here is not legal advice and does not create an attorney/ client relationship. The response is in the form of legal education and is intended to provide general information about the matter in question. Many times the questioner may leave out details which would make the reply unsuitable. Mr. Sarno strongly advises the questioner to confer with an attorney in their own state to acquire more information.
