Settlement sticking points same as in beginning. Husb totally uncooperative.
A: David's Answer: You could have your attorney file an order to show cause seeking interim relief. You may be able to argue the Judge should order him, on an interim basis, to contribute towards the mortgage and/or pay you alimony (i.e., maintenance). Schedule a consult with a NYC Divorce attorney for a full assessment. -- David Bliven, Bronx Divorce Attorney, (www.Blivenlaw.net)
