Ex is Self Employed. Cheats on taxes, pays zero income tax. Admitted fraud for years both before and during our cohabitation. Continues to cheat post separation. I personally spoke with ex's accountant about the fraud. I have tax returns in possession. I have bank statements in possession. Ex attempting to use fraudulent returns to extort un-owed support. Claimed "unemployed" and $800/mo income to Support Services yet would not submit FL-150 or tax returns so they closed the case. May I allege what I have personal knowledge of ("fraud) and know I can easily prove, in my Custody Declaration for Temp Orders prior to discovery being finished? I have zero fear of being able to prove allegations. Do I need to tip-toe around this or can I just come right out with it?Note: This is not a Divorce proceeding. Never married. Always filed seperately. In fact, inability to clean up tax mess was part of reason for separation. This is for a Declaration as part of a family law Custody case wherein I am seeking Legal and Physical Custody of my child. Child Support will also be (at some point) ordered as a matter of procedure. I am assuming ex's lawyer will want to settle via stipulation one these matters come to light (I'm sure he's currently unaware). Wondering if once this is alleged in a Declaration before the court if it is even possible to not have a judge rule punitively upon the Ex. (?)
