I’m trying to prove that my ex-wife is living with someone so I can get out of paying her alimony which is in the court decree. She’s been living with a guy for over 2 years but has been trying to hide it. She didn’t do a good job. He recently bought a house in Florida and she moved with him and is living there. Its all on video but she is still trying to hide it. She gave me a P.O. box in Florida to send the alimony checks to. She said her secondary address is where her parents live in Florida which is where she says she lives, 5.1 miles from where she accurately lives. I want to send her the alimony check certified to the address she lives at to try and catch her living there but they have a service center with all the mailboxes. Can I send it from a different zip code with no return address because I know she won’t except it if she thinks it’s from me because she would be caught red handed by excepting it. Or can I send it with a return address of the court system that we will be going to for abolishment of the alimony which she has been served for in Florida. That address she lives at also comes comes up first on the IRB report from December of 2017 to June 2018.
It is not an attorney's job to help someone "trick" another to get evidence, just send her alimony to the PO Box
and find other means to prove that she is living with someone else.
This is not legal advice until I am retained and have reviewed all facts about your situation.
You can file a Motion for Modification to terminate alimony. Once you've done so, you can send her discovery requests in the form of interrogatories and requests for production of documents. Hopefully you will be able to obtain the proof through discovery.

No sned it where you are supposed to and find a different way to prove she lives with a boyfriend. Hire a local private investigator if you need too, because it will carry more swag in court than 1 letter. She may claim she stays there once in awhile and thats Ok too. If she works, what address does she use at work? what does she use on a tax return? She has probably found a way to cover all bases and it will be hard for you to prove absent an investigator that can say she is there.
