Question: My divorce was final in June of 2009. I was ordered to pay my ex wife $1,500 per month in transitional spousal support and $501 per month in child support. 

Since July of 2009, my ex wife has been cohabitating with her boyfriend. Since she is now cohabitating intimately with her boyfriend, would I have a case for reducing or eliminating the spousal support? 

After paying the monthly spousal and child support, I am only left with about $200-$300 of my net pay. This has left me effectively homeless, barring the good graces of a few friends and family.

Question: I've been unemployed for 6 months now. Child support payments are destroying my credit because my debt exceeds my unemployment even though the support payments are less than $200 a month. 

My ex makes over $100,000 a year and I have basically no income right now. In our divorce agreement, it’s written that we both agreed to mutually waive alimony past and present. 

Is there any way to change that given my change in circumstances?

Question: I have my children every Thursday night and every other weekend. In our divorce decree it says to "equally share transportation." I told my ex due to this I would pick up the children for my visitation and she could pick them up from me. 

However, since it isn’t convenient for her she is refusing to pick up the children saying she has to take them to school and the babysitter everyday. 

She said her lawyer told her to document the mileage she uses to drop the kids off to school and the babysitter to make me pay for it and to document it as "unwillingness to cooperate with the visitation schedule." 

But I am paying well more in child support and alimony than she would spend on gas mileage. So who’s right in this situation?

Question: I've been divorced for 15 years and am paying alimony to my ex wife of $200 per week with no end in sight. Both of our child are grown and out of the house. 

She now has a boyfriend who has moved in with her. Is there anyway to get this amount reduced or even done away with all together?

My ex wife is getting remarried in the next few weeks. How do I go about making certain my maintenance payments to her are terminated? I won’t have to pay alimony once she’s married, right?
