Westchester Divorce Attorney Archives

My exspouse is refusing to pay my alimony. Will judge order him to pay?

Q: We have a divorce decree and length of the alimony was for 6 years. He has been paying it for 3 years & then decided to stop. I've a filed an order to show cause and we meet with the judge this week. Will the judge order him to pay? 

My attorneys contacted me about my divorce Stipulation Agreement. Was divorced 7-18-18. Ex wants to change life insurance policy

Q:Attorney said ex wants me to sign paperwork @$1,250,000.00 life insurance policy that agreement requires him to maintain for me. That X made mistake and can't be used for "that?" Purpose because X isn't owner of policy? Solution proposed to me is allow X to divide $1,250,000.00 policy into smaller ones so X can cancel each policy after X has paid amount of support covered by each policy. Example once $250,000.00 of support he can cancel or change beneficiary of $250,000.00 leaving proper amount of insurance remains his obligation. Supposedly I'd still be covered by Agreement the same. So why would attorneys want me to make changes? Myself and my X's father are both on policy 

What is the statutory minimum that I would be ordered to pay? Would it be fair for the court to consider my stocks and house?

Q:My wife and I live in and were married in NY. I was just terminated from my government job; I'm claiming it was due to a disability and have retained an attorney in this regard. I intend to file for divorce and know that she will get custody of our son and that I will have to pay child support. She does not work, and I have no current income, other than $3,000 in stock dividends yearly, and minuscule bank interest. My stock holdings are worth about $200k . I own the house, worth about $800k and intend to live there. I know that the standard for support would be 17% of my income, but I don't have a salary, not a pension. I have a strong case against the government, but it can take a year or more for my disability retirement to be approved, or denied, but my case is very compelling. I'm afraid the support magistrate is going to look at me as having a lot of money, but I have no steady and very little income flow. If I were to sell my stocks to help pay for support, I wouldn't have enough left to pay my taxes on substantial capital gains.

How can I get an Ex to allow me to inspect a home for damage we both still own?

Q: We have stated in the divorce agreement that I can inspect twice a year with 30 days notice and i follow the agreement but when i show up she states i am threatening her and will call the police if I ring the door bell. Can I get a court order to enter?

Am I allowed to have my own account ?

Q: If I am married am I allowed to have a separate account and not to give access to it to my husband? We are about to divorce and I am afraid that if i give him access to it he is going to transfer money from there to his parent's account and I won't have money to hire a lawyer. But I do not know if I am allowed NOT to give him access to this account as technically it is our marital money.... also am I REQUIRED to give him cash from this account if he asks for money?
