  • Cost of maintaining the matrimonial home

    My husband left our home. I am financially dependant on him and now just getting into the separation agreement stage. Does he have to pay for half of the mortgage, property taxes and property insurance until we sell our home? I understand I have to pay the utilities and other maintence but he seems to be under the impression that the total cost of the home is my burden to be paid out of my spousal and child support even though he will split the equity in the home once we sell it. Is that the case? Our home is increasing in value and will have once we sell it. It doesn't seem fair that I have to pay everything and then still split the increase in equity with him.
