The judgement was decided during our divorce. I owned a house prior to our marriage and after he had an affair I asked for a divorce... I had to sell my house and he refused to sign the paperwork (it takes both parties to sell in MN even if it is pre-martial assest) eventually he agreed but by then I had to come to the table with about $20,000. He wrote the check for the amount and in the divorce settlement it was decided I had to pay him back.. (no fault divorce of course)
He has waited a long time because I contracted west nile and was unable to work.. Now I am rebuilding our lives, am almost finished with my Masters and will finally be able to support us without the food banks and help of friends.
I understand that I have no option, that I do owe him, I have come to terms with that. I had an option to appeal at the time but no money for the appeal.. He is quite wealthy.. and was able to keep things going a long time.
A comfortable amount for me ... $250.00 a month? is that at all reasonable since he can take p to 600. ? My concern is that I am going to have to pay my student loans back starting in the fall. That is how we have been able to make it up till now.

Your kind words are very considerate and I appreciate them.. I do not want to appear like a 'hard luck case'
I am very happy to work this out through letters and will proceed to do so at once.
A few things I am unclear of..
as I am writing the letters and negotiating.. Can he still proceed while
negotiations through letter are occurring with the garnishment.
Can these letters be through email?
Is there some kind of legal document to be filled out to request a 'stay' until negotiations can be completed?
Can I request in the future to communicate with you in order not to re-explain the situation and how do I do this.
I am grateful this on-line service and want to let you know that it was highly recommended by a friends husband and will also be recommending it to others in the future..
Thank you so much for the "excellent service" rating and the GENEROUS bonus! Both are greatly appreciated and I am glad that you found the information useful. If you have future questions, you can specifically request me by name as the expert. Thanks again, and best wishes xavierjd
