After several years the man loses his job and has no income other than the interest from his equitable distribution.Question: If the man seeks a reduction of alimony but still has his share as an asset, does this disqualify his motion for changed circumstance since he can theoretically pay from this?

My wife MAY BE filing for divorce in New Jersey. I moved to

My wife MAY BE filing for divorce in New Jersey. I moved to Dallas in June 2016 and she was planning to move here with our 1 yr old baby but things have turned south. She filed a TRO against me on Feb 2nd after coming back from India where she was for 2 months. I bought a house here which is under construction and delivery scheduled in April 2017. I already have money invested as part of downpayment and the 20% i have kept in bank (after selling our house in Jersey). She did not contribute a penny for this house or the earlier house in Jersey. But what should i do, forget about the house and back out leaving 38K on the table or I can still own the house? Second, she was a co-signee on the loan but loan was entirely on my name because of her bad credit score, so what happens with loan? Can i take her out and re-do paperwork with just me on the loan? How do Texas laws work with regards ***** ***** property?
