I recently found out my soon to be ex husband has been committing various frauds. From stealing from the military to identify theft to credit cards, etc. Am I able to report him? I had ZERO idea and fear what he may have done to me.
There is no reason you cannot file a report with the relevant agencies. Sometimes this may be done anonymously. "Knowing" something to be true and proving it to the satisfaction of police authorities to commence an investigation are often very different. Using a lawyer would be prudent even though not mandatory.
The above is general legal and business analysis. It is not "legal advice" but analysis, and different lawyers may analyse this matter differently, especially if there are additional facts...
You should also consider what might happen to your spousal and child support if he is convicted and goes to jail or loses his right to work because of the conviction, as well as whether the community may be liable for any fines or penalties or reimbursement orders, damages if a victim sues him in civil court and whether the community is liable for the fees for his criminal or civil defense counsel. In general, you need to balance the potential risks and rewards from pursuing the criminal charges against your rights and risks in the dissolution proceeding.
