Q. How can I assure my ex pays me the $15,000 he promised to pay after sale of house?
A: To provide a thorough answer I would have to review the Divorce Decree and Court Order approving the Agreement between you and your ex-Husband. Most Agreements as part of the dissolution of a marriage will specify exact date(s) when some event must occur. For example, in a case involving minor children with child support to be paid, the agreement will state "the non-custodial parent will pay the custodial parent $_____________ in monthly child support not later then the first day of each month." If that doesn't happen, the custodial parent will find it far easier to prove that to a family court judge in a hearing for contempt of a court order. In this case, your agreement should have stated a " upon sale of the house and not later than or by___________day of ___________month, 2020, husband will pay wife $15,000.00. You need to consult your attorney or an attorney of your choosing in this matter. Please do not construe this answer as my representation of your case, but only as a general answer to this type of question. Again, consult an attorney. Good luck.
