Divorce and Status Quo
Many people who are not fully financially independent and who are considering divorce, worry how they will survive the duration of the proceedings without the other spouse's financial help. The good news is that during the proceeding, the parties should maintain status quo with regards to their financial obligations. If a spouse stops paying for his or her share of the bills or tries to withdraw money from an account, a petition for temporary relief can be filed. The court can then order the other spouse to make payments during the divorce and to maintain said status quo.
