  • In our Divorce Decree, my ex is ordered to make payments to me every month for the Equity from our home and property. He has been late in his payments half of the time; sent a NSF check or only partial payment. I accepted the payment plan because he said he wanted to keep the house, and was unable to get a loan for the amount he would owe. The total amount he would owe me is only $21,000.00. Is there anything I can do to have the Decree changed so that he has to pay the balance to me in a lump-sum now?
  • I am pregnant and not in a relationship with the father. He wanted me to get an abortion and I refused. He has provided no assistance or support and now that I am about to deliver he says he has a change of heart and is making unreasonable demands. What are my rights and how can I protect my child?
