Is a divorce settlement binding on a spouse who moved to another state?
Question Details: My husband has provided $3000/month support for past the 5 years for 3 children. His ex-wife demands more. However, he has already given her 1/2 of retirement but she wants much more.

A divorce settlement is a contract between parties and yes, it is binding even if one of the parties moves to another state. The issue will be what is the home state of the children. Once they reside in a state for 6 months it becomes their home state and any proceeding that deals with them will likely be brought there. If the ex wants more money then she is going to have to make an application to the courts to raise child support and she is going to have to meet the legal requirements for bringing such a proceeding (likely something like a substantial change in circumstances). Good luck.
