My ex and I did the “do it yourself” route and signed a separation agreement that we’ve been following for the last 3 years or so. In January, he “arbitrarily” decided that the alimony payments we agreed upon were too much and he abruptly ended them. Because our separation agreement didn’t include a provision for reimbursement of attorney’s fees, I filed a motion with the help of an attorney including the separation agreement in an Absolute Divorce. My understanding is once the divorce paperwork is signed and the divorce is final, if he continues to not pay alimony, I can then pursue a contempt of court action against him because the alimony will have been court ordered.
I went through CSE as well and have a court date scheduled July 1. When we agreed on the initial amounts for CS, it was based on our incomes then and with 50/50 custody. My ex travels SIGNIFICANTLY on business and I keep a very detailed calendar noting the number of overnights. This year, he’s had them so far only 40 overnights and I’ve had them over 80. Can I bring this information forward at the CS hearing and get support modified, even though we “agreed” on a set amount in the property settlement agreement?
