I'm divorced and my Ex husband has not paid me alimony in 4

Hi, I'm divorced and my Ex husband has not paid me alimony in 4 month. He has financial issues and trying to raise money for his start up business. I am unable to pay my rent and I barely have money for food. He resides in our beautiful home in Mission Hills which is still in both our names. He rents it out on Airbnb to make the mortgage payment. Which I just found out he is behind three months. This is the second luxury home he resides in. There is nothing on the divorce agreement that says I can not also occupy the home if needed. We just finished a mortgage forbearance and can not sell the home until a year from now, not quite sure if it's two yrs. I rent a room with a friend at the moment and need to leave due to financial hardship. I also can't qualify for an apartment due to my bad credit. What are my legal rights?

I recently submitted an application to lease an apartment.

I recently submitted an application to lease an apartment. Prior to applying I informed her that I was currently unemployed and the only income I have is my child support and alimony payments( which were not sufficient to qualify me for the lease) I told her I could use a cosigner if she allowed it, she agreed. I received an email from the owner with a fee list, application fee was $130 in total, $50 for me, $50 for my 19 year old daughter, and $30 for my cosigner. My daughters and my information were included on one application, which I gave to the owner. She told me she would need my cosigners application by days end to proceed with the process and she would call me if she didn't receive anything. The owner call me after 6pm and stated that she hadn't received the application. My cosigner called the owner the following day because she had a few questions and told the her she would send the completed application after she speaks to me. After speaking to me I told her we weren't going to move forward with the application because I didn't feel comfortable with the monthly rent and the lease terms. The owner had already stated that she couldn't move forward with the application without a cosigner because she couldnt qualify me alone because of my lack of income. I reached out to the owner and explained to her my reason for not sending my cosigners application and that I was no longer interested in the apartment. I asked for the application fee to be returned because she never received a complete application to submit on my behalf. She stated she does not owe me anything because she processed the information on myself and daughter. I know she didn't process anything because she never gave me the results of her findings or mentioned anything about processing our portion alone. She stated that she would try to get the $30 back for my cosigners application but she couldn't promise anything. Is she allowed to keep my application fee if she submitted my partial application knowing I couldn't be approved alone and the fact that she told me she couldn't move forward without my cosigners information. Wouldn't the burden of any fees incurred fall on the owner if she submitted an incomplete application on my behalf?

I have a mediated settlement agreement that states I have to vacate my marital home within 14 days of receiving equity check from husband. I'm not working and it seems impossible to secure an apartment because I have adequate income. I'm now 1 day past the deadline and have nowhere to go, but he says he still wants me out. Can he make me leave or will he have to formally evict me?
