Dickinson, ND asked in Divorce for North Dakota

Q: If the house is in both mine and wife's name, and I am the one who is moving out, am I required to pay the mortgage?

Am I also required to pay the heating, water, internet, etc if I do not live in the house?

Also, There are 5 children involved (2 are biological mine, 3 are still legally with their father). Am I required to pay child support for the 3 if the father is legally suppose to pay child support already? She is a stay-at-home mom who does not work. I am the sole financial provider. I understand that I will be paying child support for the 2 that are biologically mine, I have no issues there.

A: No attorney can provide you with advice that will best suit your goals via the internet. If you cannot afford an attorney, consider at least paying for a consultation to address your questions and issues. There is too little known about your situation to address your question here and I would advise against sharing more online as it could then be discovered by your wife or her attorney.
