I won alimony in a a process that took me a year. He cheated and I was awarded a monthly sum for a number of years. We both represented ourselves. Me because I could not afford a lawyer. Him because he didn’t think I could prove it. Now that I won, he is claiming he suffers from mental health disorders and is under the care for said disorders, that severely affected his ability to organize his thoughts and arguments and thoughtfully engage in his own representation that one day on the stand. He wants a new trial. How do I over come this argument and get it denied? He has a high public civil service job that would frown on the fact that he is making life and death decisions for others lives if he is suffering from such a malady. He might even be put on admin leave while it is determined if he should be making such decisions.Early on he had the best divorce lawyer in Durham NC and fired him because he didnt want to spend the money. Now he hired a new attorney. He cheated. I won. I do not want to go thru another year of this. Please help!!
also he filed a motion to set aside alimony–do I need to respond to this filing or do I just go to our court date and get my say then?
