Medical and Child Support

I have been divorced for 13 years and it was finalized in Las Vegas. My ex
husband has since remarried and moved to Colorado and I live in Utah. I am
needing back payments on Medical and more Child Support since he hasn’t taken
them for his visits and I basically have them for 365 days of the year. What can
I do to get the case moved to Utah so I can go back and have him pay the medical
bills since it is in our decree.

If the children are still minors and you need to sue for the back support then you sue in the Children's home state - Utah.  You will have to ask the Court how they wish you to serve the papers (likely hire a process server in CO) and then once served he must appear and answer.  If he does not then he will be in default.  You will get an order and judgement and then you can file that against emplyer or his estate.  Good luck.
