thank you for your response. I realize I should have been more clear about the car...we still reside in the same home, and I had agreed that once I found employment ( I am awaiting budget approval for a full time job), and have moved myself and the kids out, I would then take on the payments. But since he is bringing in income and I am living off my last commission check, it seems more fair that he continue making the payments. As far as his projected commissions, he has only been working the sales job for a little over a month. He is told that the minimum he will make is 60K (that includes his base). So would I be able to request a judge factor that into the equation or would I have to wait till next year when he files taxes and go back to court?
