If alimony was waived at the time of the divorce, it can't be granted now unless and only unless the order granted a "reservation" to later seek alimony (which is fairly rare). Child support, unlike alimony, is always modifiable...and if/when child support stops because the court order requires it to stop or if no child support is ordered at all but your ex is paying you voluntarily, then it is considered a "gift" and you should take it for as long as you can because when it stops the court can't require him to pay child support after the statutes say child support stops.

Child support terminates at 18 in NH, unless your agreement and court order say that it will go beyond that time. So if he is paying you after that time for your kids, again you're getting a "gift" from him, that could stop at any point.
