Is there an order or agreement in place about support? If so, what does it say about spousal support?

How long were you married for and did you live together first and if so for how long?

Is there nothing about spousal support in the divorce judgment? When did you separate?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Separated 5 years ago no spou spousal support either way, no child support then either divorced last April
Family Lawyer: Legal Ease, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

His income doesn't come into play unless you want to make a claim for undue hardship.

If you are saying that it is exceedingly difficult for you to pay the table amount of support then you can bring an application to the court to vary what you have to pay based on the fact that the amount is causing you do suffer undue hardship.

Then the court would compare his standard of living to yours and then even his spouse's income would be considered.

So it sounds like this should be your next step.
