Yes it is.
I am not certain what your question is.
However, I can tell you that if he moves out of the house he is not liablefor the bills or mortgage of a house that he does not live in although he maybe liable to pay some spousal maintenance under the terms of the divorce.
If you cannot afford to live in the house on your own, you cannot sell itwithout his consent which, from the fact you give, he is unlikely to give. Youare therefore faced with applying to court for an order that the house is sold.
You do not say whether you have any children or not they can obviouslyaffect the situation so please let me know if you do have.
Can I help further?
