I have a vehicle that I drive that is in both my company name and wife's name and we are divorcing. Do I still have to pay for it? She drives a leased vehicle that's done in 12 months and I drive the other but not willing to keep it since shes after alimony, half my savings, 50% of both properties and of course child support.
It sounds like you have a lot of moving pieces involved in your divorce. The best idea is to speak with an experienced family law attorney in your area so that someone can help you look at the big picture and help you achieve the results you are looking for. However, the short answer to your immediate question is yes, you should continue to pay for any obligations you currently have until a signed agreement is reached in writing or by court order. You do not want to do anything to hurt your credit as you enter an already financially trying time.
You should speak with an attorney and go over all of the financial aspects of your situation. The answer is more than yes or no. It is better to get educated on what your rights and obligations are prior to you doing something that could hurt you in the long run.
The answering of this question is just friendly advice, and in no way legal advice, nor create an attorney-client relationship. For legal advise you should contact an attorney with detailed information about your situation, so he or she can better assist you. - Scott Weiss, Esq. www.weinerweiss.com
