What is the name of your state? NY. My name is Renee, I am on social security disability and I have and NYS disability retirement pension due to a back surgery that went drastically wrong and many others that followed.
I can never work, nor ever have gainful employment or the potential to earn an income due to spinal headaches from a screw tearing my spinal membrane; there is no cure only pain management.
That is nice.
If my soon to be ex retires,
He may not have to pay you spousal support but if the two of you have minor children then he WILL have to financially support them. Especially at his age. And you can argue to have his income imputed. Retirement at his age would be considered a voluntary unemployment.
which he threatens to do in order not to pay child support or maintenance,
will I have to pay him even though at present my income is $30,000 less and I will never earn any more and he can?
If he retires he will draw a pension correct? So you have disability income (is your child/ren receiving disability due to your disability?) and he would have retirement income.
Okay. So he can work. Choosing not to is NOT the same as not being ABLE to. He won't get out of child support.
He is a healthy 45 year old with special training in OSHA and other area in relations to police work being he is a high ranking NYS Trooper.
The marriage ended due to his long term affair with a civilian employee at NYS Police Division Headquarters.
Parents should remember 3 things: Love your kids more than you hate your ex; when you have children the relationship with the other parent is until death; your children determine what type of nursing home you end up in.
Nothing stated by me should be taken as giving you legal advice or forming an attorney/client relationship.

I've removed the knife from my back, polished it, and will one day return it -- long after you think I have forgotten.
