Hi. I was wondering if anyone knew if you are required to report a change in income that might affect alimony. In my case, my ex-wife graduated from college just after we separated, but has been working part time at a pawn shop. Because she had suffered a back injury years ago the judge wouldn't impute any income potential for her, although her degrees are in accounting and finance management which wouldn't really be affected by her injury and certainly much less than being on her feet in a pawn shop. She has stayed underemployed deliberately to increase her alimony, but now that that has been settled my stepdaughter told me she's been applying for more appropriate jobs. If she does obtain full time employment is she required to report that, or do I need to do my own detective work? Thanks for any info.

It's uncommon to change alimony unless the ink just dried on the papers. Unless your decree says she has to report income, she doesn't have to. I would ask an attorney in your local jurisdiction as the issue may vary in some aress.
