Ex not entitled to funds and new income not included in current agreement. Also if ex is lying you may alert the court and seek modification and to hold ex in contempt which could result in reduced payments.martindale.com and findlaw.com are both excellent lookup directories. Both highly rated. Both used by lawyers. Easy to search and find local options.You want to prepare your case by creating a time line starting from the earliest event. For each event, write down key details and witnesses and if there is a document that relates to it, save it and refer to it. This timeline can be very valuable in narrating your case and presenting it later in a concrete and specific way.
