I have a question about a mortgage & how it can be resolved in a divorce.
Long story short, wife & I have a $1800 house mortgage that has both of our names on it.
I caught her cheating (cyber affair), she did not want to reconcile & now we are heading to a divorce.
We have jointly decided that we should sell the house.
She is a nurse & has told me that she is wanting to go on travel nursing jobs (in Florida, our home state). My plan was for me to stay in the house & make improvements until it is sold (repairing, painting, etc)
She has sent me an agreement that she would pay $400 a month for a maximum of 9 months, in order for us to sell the house. Since this is what she paid while we were married for utilities...I paid the mortgage each month.
I have learned now that travel nurses get either free housing or they get a stipend for housing from the travel agency that they go with. I also understand that it is tax free if they have a permanent house in the state in which they live.
What are my legal standings with her doing this? I do not feel it is fair for her to only pay $400 of our mortgage while she gets her housing for free as a travel nurse.
