Hello Lori,My name isXXXXX a licensed attorney. Glad to try and help out.Here's how this works. Yes, A person subject to such an Order is still bound to comply with the provisions thereof. He or she would be subject to being held in contempt for disobedience of what the Court has rendered. If the person wants to be relieved of their obligations, they would have to follow the proper procedure for seeking such relief.If you have a follow-up question or need clarification, please just say the word by using "reply" to reach me. I truly hope all works out for you.Take care,Ben, J.D.
What steps would he need to take in order to be relieved of his duties that is paying the child support and alimony. He has an attourney as well as I do.
If he does these steps does this mean that all responiblites to me would be relinguished if the courts decide that yes he can either have the order modified or terminated. What about when he goes back to work, would I have to take him back to court? I may be jumping the gun a bit but I want to know where I stand if he figures out how to stop the payments from coming to me. What about the past payments that I have not received since January 8th. Would that be up to the courts to decide if he continues to pay the back support or not?
Hi Ben one more question for you. I am living with my boyfriend and he is thinking about putting me on his health insurance. If I do this will I loose my alimony?
