Just curious if other people feel the same way. The ex remarries, still wants her contractual alimony _ and we did not know it was contractual - we thought it fell under the laws saying that if she remarried it would end.
If alimony is contained in a contract which does not specify that it ends upon remarriage it will continue pursuant to the contract.
After over two years of court preceedings concerning ED and alimony, the court has handed down a judgement. It was my understanding that there is a 10 day window for either side to inform the court of any errors not judgements in the order. The 10 days passed with no contention.
Now, 4 weeks later, my attorney informed me there is a dispute over about 300 that my X says I owe. And… if I dont pay the 300 they will file comtempt and go back and ask for ALL my Xs attorney fees be paid for the previous trials. My attorney and I are in agreement that I do not owe the 300 and we can prove it through documentation. This seems to border on extortion as described in NCGS Chapter 14-118-4. Your comments please.
In the previous trial, my X ask the court for an award of all attorney fees to be paid by me. In the decision the court never addressed this issue, for or against.
Is it possible, after the court has ruled, to go back and re-try a case? I thought that was what the appeal process is for. Could you please clarify this?
If your ex files a contempt motion at this point it would only relate to attorney’s fees on that issue since all remaining issues have been decided by the court at this point. Your ex cannot have those issues addressed by the court again without attempting an appeal.
