My soon to be ex husband and I agreed to a certain amount for him to support our child, but I have a feeling that he's hiding something about his finances. I have filed for divorce and he has defaulted saying I should go ahead with the divorce since we've agreed on child support and visitation.
Can the court figure out his exact pay if we submit our SSN in court while I seek a default divorce? Will the court automatically dig into his finances?
The court will not do an investigation or discovery. You would have to provide Proof of that financial information. You should consult with an attorney to review your prior orders and discuss what would be needed, such as subpoenas or private investigation, etc.
You need to hire attorney who can file necessary documentation to find out about his finances.
