I have a court order for alimony for life, ($200.00), over $8,000. approx. due unless I remarry or my ex dies., neither of these has happened. My ex now lives in Texas I live in California with our disabled son. My ex claims he cannot afford to pay and has stopped alimony payments due to a book deal. I haven't received any alimony since 2015, no word re: his book deal either. I finally located him in Mc Allen area of Texas. I am now retired and do need this alimony and the arrears. He paid through the Fauklner county clerk as we lived in Conway when we divorced in 1986.
Is there anyway I can collect on this debt, court ordered alimony ?
