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?

Question: Can the court force my ex to get back into the workplace and get a job? 

I’m breaking my back working so much just to afford the child support and alimony that she’s living off of. I pay so much to them that she doesn’t even need to get a job. In no way is this fair. 

So can it be done? Can the court tell her to get to work and start contributing?

Question: I was divorced two years ago and the decree required payment of $1,700/month for spousal support until the house was sold. The court decree did not require the house to be put on the market and no timeline to get it sold. 

So two years later, alimony has not started (alimony was mediated and fixed). At the time of the divorce I made over $100,000/year and my ex did not work. Now I have been unemployed for one year and my ex makes over $50,000/year. 

Can the mediated and non-modifiable alimony be set aside? And can the spousal support be modified/abated because of my unemployment?
