My divorce was final in 2006, I was granted full custody of my two children, 6 and 11 at the time. I was granted child support based on my husband's income and alimony until the youngest turned 18. I was a stay at home Mom and was paid well to raise my boys. Now at the age of 50 I would like to petition for alimony for life since I have sacrificed so many years being the custodial parent. My ex was the one who filed for divorce because of his own infidelity, he had no interest in joint custody but has regular visitation. The older son is now 19 and I have lost his support already. If increased child support is granted can it be retroactive? The ex in question is a high level executive.We had been married for 17 years when the divorce was final, we had relocated 7 times in 10 years to follow his career and accept promotions so having any career of my own was highly unlikely. I did not contest the divorce and our agreement was handled by a family friend.
