My ex moved out a year ago from a townhouse that we both purchased 6 years ago. He has just told me that he has seeked legal advice and that he doesn't have to pay for the mortgage any more as he doesn't live in the townhouse anymore. I live in the townhouse with our 8 year old son. Our agreement on day of purchase was to pay weekly as in he pays one week I pay the next and so on. Before he left and after him leaving I have paid for the rates, body Corporate and water bills etc... I have also found out that he has not paid the mortgage for a couple of weeks and we are owing over $2000 on the home loan. What are my legal rights? What are my options? What will he be entitled to if he doesn't pay the mortgage?
