I only have the evidence of her 11 contempt of courts which I was only hanging onto in case she took me to court like this. The alimony was awarded as a lump sum amount of $64,000 made payable at $1000 a month. As long as I wasn't paying my mortgage of 1126. a month it was bad but not impossible. I want to know if I can bring up her contempts when we go to court? I also want to know what I need to do to make sure I don't go to jail short of making the full payment?
Do you think it is a good idea to make my best effort to pay what I can when asked?
I also wanted to tell you that the judge that awarded her alimony despite her affair and being totally unfair to me went way out of his way to prove he wasn't playing favorites as my brother is a senior judge to him! The ex made several threats to everyone involved. She had one attorney quit and two guardian ad-litems quit (one retired). She was diagnosed a paranoid delousinal with no therapy and got custody after I had custody for 2.5 years.
Can a different judge in a different jurisdiction change a lump sum alimony?
