My ex just let me know he lost his job three months ago and will not be able to pay me child support or alimony from this point on. Very upset he didn’t tell me when it first happened so that i could be better prepared. Now i am going to be forced to leave my rental home and get an apartment once again uprooting my kids who finaly just got settled. I had planned to get a second job in the beginning of the year but had a family emergency that caused me not to be able to job hunt for a few months. Now i am looking for anything to help with the cost of fufilling my rental agreement, getting an apartment and paying for moving.
I am not even certain he has lost his job. He has lied numerous times about his salary during our divorce process. He still has lawn service, a boat load of antiques in his home and a membership to a club that costs $90 a month.
I have to now wait until the 1st of the month to see what is really going on. I have not received any adjustment to child support or alimony documents.
I would like to know what the process is once he fails to pay me on the first of the month and how to be sure he isn’t hiding money from me. He pays me with a personal check every month so he isn’t having it pulled from his salary or income.
Can he be forced to sell unnecessary material things to pay me? Can he be forced to get cash from his 401k?
Thank you for any advice.
