Separated but not a legal separation 

My wife left the house as she stated it was not a good environment for the kids.  Demanded I give her $2100 plus half of stimulus check to get an apartment.  I did, she also took furniture, tv, 70% of kids clothes.  She began acting like she was the court and set when I could see the children.  Stated I would pay the $1484 a month in childcare expenses, continue paying her car insurance and I also pay her cell phone bill.  As the courts are not involved shouldn't we be sharing the expenses of the kids as she took it upon herself to move out.  She is making 60k and I at best am at 50K.

Now she is stating that she is going to have a court injunction forcing me to pay for the child care. 
I am still in the position that we should be sharing our kids expenses.  I simply cannot afford to pay the
full amount of child care.  Offered to pay half of kids insurance and half of child care......  Can she get an injunction forcing me to pay
the child care?

You don't have to pay anything if she moved out until a court orders you to actually.


She also, by the same right, doesn't have to let you see the kids...


I suggest you, at the very least, get to an attorney to get a legal separation agreement in place - as there is no reason for you to have to be subject to that kind of financial burden...


stop paying anything until you are legally required to - including expenses for the kids. You may have been a jackass but it doesn't mean you have to pay for it, literally.
