I have an ex fiance that promised me statements on the spending of my $20,000. It's been 2 months and now I need help. I feel that it's not fair he spent my money without my consent. I trusted him and now he moved to Las Vegas.. I'm in ontario,ca. Please help.I talked to him last night by phone and call. He said he's not paying me. I also have text for a case. He won't respond so I need justice to be served..
Seems like your remedy is to sue in civil court but its possible he will use the defense that this was a gift to him.
The answers on this discussion board are general in nature and NOT intended as legal advice. Responding to questions does not constitute an attorney-client relationship. Always see a lawyer about your individual situation.
You can file suit if it was not a gift he owes you back the money. Issues are what did he use money for. Who broke it off if he did it negates a gift because a gift in contemplation of marriage if the marriage does not happen is not a gift. Get a local attorney file where you are and make him defend where you are. Under the full faith and credit clause of the U. S. Constituion the judgement in your state will be enforceable in his state. I hoped I helped you.
Counsel Harrington and Bell offer sound advice. A claim in civil court is warranted and you will probably need the assistance of a lawyer.
If you would like assistance I have an office in Ontario, give me a call
