My ex husband has decided to stop giving me my alimony. I stopped by the court house and was told I could take him to court without an attorney. I am a senior on social security.
However, the package given to me seems complicated and I need help. What can you advise me to do?
Have you tried legal aid in your area---the may be able to help you free of charges.
Also many law schools have legal aid clinics---you might contact any near you and see if they will help you.
NO ATTORNEY CLIENT PRIVILEGE IS CREATED OR EXISTS. Do not rely on any answers you get online from me or any other lawyers in this forum---nothing substitutes for a confidential and protected discussion with an attorney. There is no way you have provided sufficient information for a proper legal analysis—can’t be done online. This is a general legal question and answer site and guidance here is for general interest---a push in the right direction.
You probably need to hire an attorney to assist you with filing the motion.

You need to file an in force and motion. You should at the very least have a consult with an attorney to guide you along.
