You can charge him rent if he is living in your house but you say he has abandoned the mother. If that is the case then the mother needs to pursue child support from the father, which she can share with you for expenses.

You need to read your divorce decree (marital settlement agreement) to see if your alimony is modifiable. If yes then you can return to court for a modification. You will also have an opportunity to modify when you retire.

You need to be ready to present evidence as to why he should have supervised visitation. If there is no relationship then the timesharing would probably start with a reunification plan. You should schedule a consultation with a local lawyer to discuss the details.
I have had a permanent injunction against my ex boyfriend since July 2018. I did not ask for child support when I got that injunction.

Her request will probably be granted, unless there is specific language in your settlement agreement about the procedure if you are ever late. The law in Florida is that it is a recipient's right to have an income withholding order, even if you have made all of your payments on time.
Me and my girlfriend live in Florida. She is divorced but kept her ex husband's last name. We are expecting and she wants the child to have her last name.
