Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Family Law litigation attorney. Thanks for your question.
It is possible to receive money from your spouse during the divorce process for rent and other expenses you will have, BUT you must file a motion with the court for temporary spousal support to be in effect throughout the divorce proceedings.
Thus, you should get a local attorney to represent you on this and file a motion for temporary spousal support. This order will provide you with money from your spouse to pay rent and possibly other expenses you can't cover alone.
Thank-you for your answer. 2 yrs. ago I had left and we were not legaly separated. I was out of my family home for 4 months, and he did not offer to help me at that time. I was in a higher paying job then so did not push the matter. I really would like to do this in a friendly manner, but I do believe I deserve some help if I am the one who has to leave. I wanted to keep this out of a battle in court. But I do want to know my rights. I will be seeking to have him buy a place for me, but will need to rent till that happens.
