My spouse is the money earner. During the marriage I paid the bills. He gives me a hard time giving enough money. And complains about how I pay things. I told him he can take over paying the bills. He doesn’t want to and threatened to charge me with financial abandonment.
There is no "financial abandonment" in NY. In a divorce, the monied spouse may be required to pay spousal maintenance (and, in appropriate, child support). This is based on your respective incomes. Speak to an attorney.
Whether you have a lawyer or not, this is a sep[arate issue from responsibility for legal fees. The law allows the "non-monied" spouse to request legal fees from the monied spouse. A Judge would have to determine this, and the amount.

You should immediately speak to an attorney about this as you will have to explain what happened and then file a motion in that regard. In the end, it will be up to the judge to decide if your explanation was good enough.
If the judge already granted the divorce when you were in court then you are divorced as of that day. If the judge did not grant a divorce on the record in court, then you are not divorced until the judgment is signed.
