Greetings. It may affect your case if you do not use a judge from the same county, or it may not. We only practice in Wake County currently, possibly because of this very issue.
You should plan to show your bills, asking for both retroactive child support and prospective child support. While he may not have to pay for half of all expenses, he may have to pay his percentage (as determined by the NC Child Support Guidelines) of the bills.
No, I don’t think that you will get PSS or alimony, although a closer look at your finances will be important. Other than alimony, his living with a woman does not matter to the court for child custody or support, unless you are saying that she is his roommate and should pay half of his expenses. Use the information to your good, but don’t dwell on it.
Yes, you can ask the court to immediately set the house on the market for sale, due to his late payments, through a motion for interim distribution. Best of luck.
