I worked overtime in order to support our lifestyle. Can the court order me to continue working overtime?

There have been cases in which a payor ex-spouse was ordered to continue overtime, in order to maintain the standard of living present during the marriage, but in those cases the overtime was not "substantial," that is, it was only a few hours a week. If your amount of overtime was substantial, it is unlikely that a court would order you to maintain it.

For example: financial hardship is often the cause of divorce, that said, if a husband was working a lot of overtime in order to provide a lavish lifestyle for his wife, he most likely, after the divorce, will not want to continue this.
