My seperation agreement and later divorce agreement stated that in exchange for making all payments on our jointly owned home my ex husband would not have to pay child support. However it stated if he did not make the mortgage payments or was no longer required to do so he would then need to share the expenses for the child. During the 18 months since we separated/divorced he made only 6 mortgage payments, defaulted the loan, got a loan modification, defaulted on that and subsequently short-saled the home destroying my credit. The house closed on 12/5/12. He refuses to discuss child support and even had the audacity to tell me he could not afford to pay half for piano lessons until February. His gross income is roughly $5000/month. How do I get child support and do I need a lawyer?
