Question by Angela
My boyfriend pays a significant amount to his ex wife even though he cares for his children 3 nights a week and she still asks him to pay for other items. She committed adultery and had the divorce papers written up and kept the house and never got it valued but gave him a share out of house which at he time his family thought was too low and her parents are very wealthy and paid off mortgage and his payoff. How can he change and lower the payment if it originally went through the courts in the divorce proceedings?

I'm afraid that's more of a legal question than one that our Financial Advisers can deal with. https://resolution.org.uk/ would be a good place to have a look.
