Divorce and failure to pay mortgage
Posted 26 December 2012 - 09:16 AM
I am currently going through a divorce in Illinois and my wife was granted possession of the residence while everything is worked out with the courts. She filed a motion for contribution after I volunteered child support and payment for daycare of our daughter. The Judge instructed her counsel to remove the motion and never to file one again. She has alleged some incredible things (lies) and the Judge was upset with her attempts to gain more than what was fair.
This brings me to my question. My wife has possession of the residence but has not paid the mortgage. We are currently one month behind in payments and she refuses to pay going forward.
Do I have any legal rights to sue her for willfully damaging my credit while she continues to sit in the house?
I have been searching online and cant find any suggestions.
Thanks for any assistance that may be offered.

Plus, you might consider petitioning the court to award you possession if you are going to be making the payments.
