I want to renegotiate a 4-year-old alimony
. My ex-wife is gainfully employed and has been living with a millionaire in a mansion for several years. Our son graduates college in a year. I'm in arrears $177K because I've never again made the amount of money in the divorce
decree. I've also been unemployed several times in the past 3 years, with arrears mounting and mounting. It's a NY divorce, even though we lived in Texas and raised our kids there. When separated, I got a job in NY, and that's where she served me. I live in Texas now, as does she. Presently, the NJ courts are garnishing my pay here, since I lived in NJ for a little while as well. Thanks. I know it is a complicated case.
JA: Have formal divorce proceedings begun? At what stage of the process are you?
Customer: The divorce was final in Dec. 2012
JA: Because family law
varies from state to state, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: It was filed in NY, tho we both lived in Texas. I just happened to be working and temp. living in NY while we were separated.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: We both live in TX now and NJ is garnishing me.
