Thanks for taking a sec to read this:

I recently was downsized out of a job that I worked for 20yrs at. I was given a lump sum severance payout (which will be heavily taxed I'm sure). My question is this

- I've been divorced for about 2yrs now and this happened to me. I've been paying our $800/mo in alimony. Is my severance subject to equitable distribution? Do I have to use my alimony to continue paying her? Do I have a shot of getting the court to modify my responsibility?

Thanks for your help in advance.
