Can my ex-wife file for spousal support 12 years after divorce settlement?
Can it be true she has grounds to seek support after all these years? In addition, I am now 64 and our youngest child is now 23 years old. My income comes from social security benefits and some bond interest. Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.

Depending on what your judgment says yes, she may have grounds to seek that. That doesn’t mean that the court will grant it, but the courts in general would prefer that private parties pay for these things rather than the government. You’re going to need to talk to an attorney in your area. ( I
don’t do a lot of contested work, so you need to talk to somebody else by the way. )
This is general advice. You are anonymous. If you PM me i won’t know what it’s about.
