My ex left me in such poverty , riches to rags. I was a full time mom! I have struggled to keep a roof over my three boys heads , pay the house payment alone , all bills , they're in college now.My health has diminished greatly because of the stress and anxiety . I was working two jobs and just have not been able to meet my financial obligations… He makes 30 to 40% more now. He has arrears child support and alimony that he owes me . When judge made that court order 5 yrs. ago (, the amount he needed to pay me every month ) it was so low because he had lied on his income, he is self-employed . Now he is in sales and works for a company . Please , what's my best plan of attack to get the judge to increase alimony? it was a 21 year marriage. . I am 60 yrs. plz. Be specific ! Thanks!
You should use whatever information you have to state that he is making 30% more...in other words, how do you know?
