I was married for 26 years and the court granted me indefinite alimony as I was a stay at home mom. I also received shares to a company that we were shareholders of. Now that the company is paying out dividends and my spouse conveniently (he is 62) is no longer working, he is taking me to court to modify or basically do away with paying me alimony. He also received a million dollar inheritance.( I am aware that is not mine.) In my settlement it never stated that if I got any money for the shares I would no longer get alimony! I am from the state of Illinois. I currently am unemployed and although they are adult children, they live with me and also find themselves unemployed. My ex is engaged and she has her own salon and so more money for him. He has only had to pay me for three years thus far! What are your thoughts? Thank you! I do have a lawyer and have already paid 16,000 for all this garbage. S.O.S.
