My husband, who has been unemployed for a little over a year (he's a symphony conductor and had been employed for 25 years before losing this past position), has finally reached a termination of alimony settlement with his ex. I shouldn't say 'just', that agreement was signed at the beginning of December AND his child support was modified to reflect his job loss to a degree. They settled between attorneys. Mind you, I'm already angry at him for risking contempt for not paying child support or alimony for a year (the ex is wealthy from us and her mother but he should pay what the court orders until it was settled). Now that there's a settlement, he hasn't paid his child support for 2 months and he hasn't given her the money he owes her. Yes, we've paid about a half a million dollars to a woman woman who lives with a man. And they jointly purchased a $400,000 house together 2 years ago on top of a million other things but it could be over with if he just handed over the check. He is a green card holder so he could be arrested and deported if she decided to file contempt. He used to be very responsible about payments and now it's a mess. He does see his son 3-4 days a week (that includes overnights). What do you think of this mess? I am just needing to vent. No, I don't get involved between the two of them and never have but I am furious with my husband for further jeopardizing our livelihood by not doing the right thing and the thing he agreed to do. What would you do? Any thoughts, support etc. would be greatly appreciated.
