Question: I was given exclusive use of our residence in my OOP. Is my husband still required to pay his half of the rent even though he was required to leave the residence?
Answer: Generally property leases are contractual obligations between the tenant or tenants and the property owner. An attorney should be consulted to properly determine the contractual obligations of an individual prohibited to return to a residence because an order of protection has been issued.
