She filed a no contest divorce through the mail and it is final now. Apparently property division did not have to be addressed for the no contest divorce. Both our names are XXXXX XXXXX title, however, the mortgage is in my name. I've been willing to continue paying the mortgage until our daughter finishes the school semester and we agreed on how to split custody. I'm just a little unclear on who has rights to the home, like if I'm able to just move back in. Shes not sure she can make mortgage payments if I stop but thinks I would have to continue paying anyway while not living there which I'm pretty sure I couldn't afford to do.
So just to clarify, if we can't agree on the house, I could just file with the courts to determine all that. I'm assuming if I'm not living there now but paying, there isn't some goofy ruling that could continue making me pay the mortgage while she lives there like spousal maintenance or something since it was a no-fault divorce.
Ok, thank you for the information.
