Will my husband still be responsible to pay the house bills even after we divorce?

Location: Franklinton  |  Law type: Family law attorneys

In 2013, my soon to be husband and I were house hunting. He refused every house except one, which was built by his great uncle. Because we were not married yet, the lender wouldn’t put us both on the loan. Since I have better credit, we had everything go through my name. The house is in my name. He’s lived here since the moment I signed the papers on the house. He has paid half the house note every month in addition to the electric bill. He makes at least twice the money I make. We also have a two year old child, that he pays $600 month for childcare. Now that trouble is at hand and divorce is probably in the future, he’s saying that since the house is in my name and it was before we got married, then he’s packing his stuff and leaving and good luck to me paying the bills. I have even told him that I can’t afford the house on my own, that I will lose it and me and the baby will be without a place to stay. He said it’s not his problem. Is this actually how the law works? Or will the courts help me, require him to pay the bills until the house is sold?
