mens divorce lawyerQuestion:

My current maintenance agreement states that I knowingly waive any claims for support or maintenance of any kind from my ex-wife and that I am to pay her alimony for the next five years.

I am taking a severe pay cut at work, and this reduction in income will make it impossible to pay the court-ordered amount.

Can I file a motion to have this maintenance terminated or modified by the courts even if I've agreed to pay this amount for the next five years?

I recently settled a personal injury medical malpractice lawsuit and was awarded a monthly amount of money.

Is this money from my personal injury settlement considered income to be used for the purposes of calculating child support?

Cordell commented on the situation facing wealthy NFL cornerback Antonio Cromartie, who has fathered nine children in six states with eight different women. Cromartie has multiple child support orders that are based on his multi-million dollar salary.

But Cordell warns "child support should not be a windfall for the mother."

Divorce attorney Jason BowmanQuestion:

My ex-wife is claiming she is starting to receive income from a new business venture she started with her new partner but provided no documentation of her income or the existence of the business.

First, does the court actually trust unfounded statements like this? Second, how can I confirm her income and that she is part of the business?

Regardless of your fight to gain custody of your children, child support will be an issue in your case. You will either be paying it or receiving it. Courts have little discretion in setting the amount of child support to be paid.

This is because, as a condition of receiving federal aid, the states are required to follow certain standards in their child support statutes. Although the exact procedures and details vary from state to state, there is a certain basic pattern no matter where you live.
