She turned 18 last may & is starting college this month. He decided to stop paying this last dec. he says he's done. He's not paying for her. Also in papers he's obligated to pay 1/2 the tuition. Can I fight him w my divorce papers even though we were divorced in NY & we now both live in fla?
You'd be filing a motion for contempt/enforcement and a petition to domesticate your New York divorce judgment (or decree or whatever they call it in New York). Normally, you wouldn't be able to do your motion for contempt on a New York divorce in Florida, but since you both live in Florida, Florida courts are allowed to take jurisdiction of your case. Since domestication is a little bit more complicated than a basic motion for contempt, you'll want to get a Florida lawyer to help you.
I am sorry that you are going through this. The courts are there to help and even though you have a NY divorce judgment you may have it enforced in FL since both of you live there. You will have to file a contempt along with another motion that this particular to FL. I suggest you retain one of the outstanding attny's who had first answered your case, it will be well worth your time. I hope that things work out for you and take good care.
