Hello, looking for some insight from board members.
I am required to pay my ex $1000/month and payed until this month. I was laid off from my job back in May. I can't find job so far. There is no more savings. I'm giving up my apartment as well and need to stay with friends.
I filed a motion to suspend alimony until I find a job but that was denied. What I suppose to do?
I'll proceed with appeal but is there anything else I should try?

There's really nothing you can do except either negotiate directly with your ex or look into countries you can move to where US law is not recognized. Did you by chance agree to alimony that was non-modifiable?
