If I ask for a divorce and move out, do I still have to pay the rent and bills on that place?
Usually yes. Not making a payment on a obligation that you have to make is disfavored, especially if there are kids in common. Stopping making, for example, a rent payment or a water bill payment or an electric payment. It will really look bad in front of the court or a judge once it comes before that judge. Especially if there are kids in common. Making those payments is extremely important to show the judge or show the court that this parent is a responsible parent and not neglecting his duties or responsibilities.
