Good evening. I have a question for a lawyer that is familiar with divorce.
Please follow me here:
I am seperated from my husband. Our divorce has been a very simple one.
We filed jointly because we were married only three years and never co-mingled any funds, etc...
I have moved from our rental apartment on June 1st, 2013 to a new condo of my own.
Per our divorce paperwork I was to continue to pay 1/2 of the rent at the old address for the months of June, July and August.
In September I was to pay 1/2 of the first tw3o weeks of rent to finish out the lease
the apartment complex contacted us about signing a new lease.
Which of course I wasn't going to do.
So my husband signed a form releasing me from the rental argreement and he quailifed for a NEW LEASE beginning SEPEMBER 1st 2013.
There is now a new lease starting on this date of which I am no longer any part of!!!!!
My soon to be ex is telling me per our divorce agreement I am still responsibile for the 1/2 of the first two weeks of the month of September at the old lease rate of $1640.00 per month. Which I was paying $820.00 per month for the last three months and he now wants $410.00 on the first of the month.
I believe that when my soon to be ex husband drew up the papers that we submitted to the courts he had his dates wrong and should have contqacted the apartment complex on when a new lease would need to be signed.
SO after all that.....my QUESTION IS:
DO I OWE THAT $410.00 FOR SEPTEMBER ON A NEW LEASE OR BECAUSE HE SIGNED A NEW LEASE AND OUR LEASE IS FINISHED AUGUST 31ST AM I OFF THE HOOK??????
He is already telling me how he is going to sue my butt.......argggggg!!!
I just want to do what the law require sme to do and NOTHING more!!!!!
