"He has a hard time making ends meet because his child support payments alone are 60% of his take home; on top of that he has alimony and the children's medical bills which because of a couple surgeries is quite large."Hi married2debtor,Something doesn't sound right.When one gets a divorce it's usually Child Supportor Alimony (which by the way is the high cost of leaving. :>))But not both! and it should be no greater than 28% of your after tax take home pay. If he is actually paying 60% by GAWD go back to courtand file for a modification you don't even need a lawyer for this!!(but I'm not suggesting it) I personally have handled all my own modifications with a great deal of success and I'm no Perry Mason!Also on the medical front yes usually the husband will supply medical coverage but split the cost of uninsured medical with the $%#%& ex wife. Been there, done that, finished paying CS.(child support)!Nomorecards
