My ex-husband is filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy and told me that he will not send alimony anymore. Though I know that alimony is not dischargeable in bankruptcy, he has not sent any check for long. What steps should I initiate to take my alimony back? He is a government employee and moreover, has two businesses with steady income. Divorce took place in the state of Virginia.

You should reopen the divorce and file an action to show cause as why your ex-husband has not worked according to the court orders (alimony payments). Consult your lawyer as to know how you can do all these.
