You may be able to address the issue of assets and debts in court, if your wife has moved out and took all of your marital possessions with her. When you formally file for divorce, it is the court’s job to assign assets and debts. It is unlikely that a court would find you entitled to spousal support, but this depends on certain facts of the case. Among the considerations of a court are what the assets are, what money each party had before the marriage, what each party earns. It would be beneficial to sit down with an experienced divorce attorney to sort out the facts of the case and to receive adequate advice on how to proceed.

If you have an ongoing divorce action in a state, you are better off filing for bankruptcy in that same state. You cannot file for divorce in a state unless you have resided in the state for a certain period of time. The same applies when filing for bankruptcy. In Connecticut, you may not be eligible for file for bankruptcy unless you have lived in the state for over 90 days. It would be best to consult with an experienced attorney who has dealt with these issues in the past. An experienced attorney can consider the specific facts of your case and educate you on the best course of action to take.

Your obligation to pay alimony to your ex-wife does not simply terminate if she chooses to cohabitate with someone. Alimony will however terminate once your ex-wife remarries. If you have stopped paying alimony under her cohabitation, it is likely that a court will require you to pay your ex-wife the alimony owed to her during her time of cohabitation. In this situation, it is very important to seek an experienced divorce attorney who can represent you and counsel you through this alimony issue.
