my attorney found evidence that my exhusband is working but he is claiming unemployment. this is the 2nd time my husband has done this & last time unempmoyment just had him repay. he is not paying child support & dragging his feet to bring in documentation to court. court system taking too long. should i hire private investigator then turn in findings to court? can i then prosecute him criminally & sue civilly as he continues to commit fraud. my attorney scheduled deposition but is worried Ex will just lie.
tired of just lying down taking it & waiting...
Unless you're a deputy district attorney for Orange County, you can't prosecute him criminally. Since your attorney has the facts, he or she should know the best course of action.
I am not your attorney. Avvo and its users acknowledge that no attorney-client relationship is established by using avvo.com. Nothing published in this website constitutes actual legal advice. You should consult with an attorney of your choice who has experience in your inquired field of law. If you are in California and have questions about estate planning, I'd be happy to receive your call.
Although the passage of time can be frustrating, be assured that this will not go on forever. I would recommend taking his deposition, even in spite of fears that he might lie. Even if he lies, liars usually trip themselves up. Be persistent. Don't worry about prosecution in a criminal action or another civil action. At some point, the judge will lose patience too. Be patient.
Before accepting any answer as a final answer, you should have your case reviewed by an attorney. No attorney on Avvo has read your paperwork and therefore cannot give a completely valid answer suited to your case.
