my spouse lied under oath in court in 2010 about the income. he withhold filling taxes for many years. recently while i had my attorney my ex gave his tax returns for past many years maybe around May 1,2014. my attorney did not provide me or my accountant the returns. He did not file a motion of fraud or setaside support. Me or accountant did not know anything about the returns till August 2014. Now I don't have my attorney. (1) do I have to file under section 271 or 3691 and what is the difference? (2) does statue of limitation of 6 month apply to both sections and does it start from August when I and accountnat got the returns or from May when my attorney withheld info from us? (3)How can I protect me for the statue of limitations issue, i need to file and get paid support
Statute of limitations will start from when you were first given notice, whether your attorney told you or not. You will have to prove your attorney withheld the information from you.

You need an attorney. This is not a DIY project.
