Should I Continue Paying My Part Of Our Brooklyn Mortgage If I’m Moving Out And We’re Filing For Divorce?

Yes, if you’re preparing to file for divorce, you should continue paying toward your existing mortgage even if you’re moving out.

Once the papers are filed, the judge will order you to do so anyway, and if some time has passed, you may be ordered to make back payments as well.

The judge will issue a series of automatic orders that are designed to lock your current financial state of affairs in place so that you and your spouse are negotiating from the same place, and from a realistic picture of your financial lives.

You’ll both be expected to maintain the property you own together until their final disposition is resolved, and things like health insurance policies and life insurance plans must stay intact.

The attorneys at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino know that our clients are usually eager to move on, but we can help you avoid costly mistakes in the lead up to your divorce.
