Customer Question

My ex has just sent a letter to my lawyer saying they want to "trigger a review" of spousal support. I was entitled to spousal bechause of many reasons - stay at home mother for the duration of marriage, I had no job at the time of divorce. I have since gone back to school for my degree - four years long and have just graduated this past april. I have contract job right now but no benefits, my daugter is in university (he pays child support but has not paid any section 7 expenses, ever) and I have emassed $32000 in debt trying to become self sufficient. In 36ou opinion am I still entitled to spousal - he makes in excess of $160,000 plus is married to a wealthy woman, I will make only $36,000 this year plus my job is only hourly and the contract is done in nine months with no guaruntee it will be extended.
