If you or your husband were to file for divorce, then the judge would order him to continue paying the mortgage or lease, bills, car payments, and any other necessary expenses, while the divorce is pending, as he usually has over the course of the marriage.

Additionally, you could also petition the court for spousal support -- long term alimony after the divorce is finalized, and also temporary alimony for assistance while the divorce is processing.

You would also be able to petition the court for custody and child support.

Unfortunately without a pending divorce case, the judge or the police really have no authority in regards ***** ***** management of his paycheck and the household finances. That is more of a private civil matter.

I hope that helps!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
