I guess my question is- how could I approach my x-husband about asking him to help us out with money after the alimony ends?

---> You don' is no longer his responsibility to support you and you'll only embarass yourself.

I have never asked anything extra of him for me and the kids. I pay for all their activities, lessons, doctor bills,tuition,etc. because he gets mad when I ask him for the money.( I'ts in our divorce papers that we are supposed to split these things.)

---> He can get mad all he wants...he has a legal obligation to share in these expenses and you have done yourself and the child a grave disservice by not insisting that he pay. I would start sending him the bills and ask for reimbursement of his share. If he gets angry...tell him TOUGH...he either pays you within 2 weeks or he can pay them AND your attorney's fees and court costs AND explain to the Judge why he is NOT following the courts orders.

---> I would also file for a modification of child support. Since alimony will end, his income will go up and yours will go down and the child will be entitled to more financial support from his father.

---> Do NOT let him bully you! Again, the child has a right to the financial support of BOTH parents. The money is NOT for you...YOU can support yourself...the money is for the support of the child.

If you air your dirty linen in public, expect people to comment on the skid marks!
