In a recent answer by an AVVO lawyer he wrote: There are rules against fraud and extortion. I appreciate all answers from your lawyers to help us learn and better understand how the legal system works. Where can I find these rules since I have a legal document which shows Fraud on the court?
Fraud and extortion can be crimes under federal and state law as well as the basis for in the civil law for damages. I am not sure whether the question allows much as it is a broad area: definition of the terms? elements of proof? possible consequences?
The applicable rules can be identified when the issue is clearly laid out.
Your question is overbroad in its scope with no clear issue---you need to take your document to a local attorney who handles matters specific to the case situation (i.e. a family law attorney for family law matters (which I have a hunch yours is), a criminal defense attorney for a criminal law matter, probate attorney for a probate matter etc.).
NO ATTORNEY CLIENT PRIVILEGE IS CREATED OR EXISTS. Do not rely on any answers you get online from me or any other lawyers in this forum---nothing substitutes for a confidential and protected discussion with an attorney. There is no way you have provided sufficient information for a proper legal analysis—can’t be done online. This is a general legal question and answer site and guidance here is for general interest---a push in the right direction.
Your question is too broad for this general advice forum. There are at least 4 definitions of civil fraud in the Texas Pattern Jury Charge and a number of other state and federal fraud definitions with a multitude of variations: mail, wire, securities, tax, voter, reAl estate, qui tam, etc. This wide variety reflects the active imagination and creativity of fraud feasors. Most require deception, materiality, justifiable reliance and economic harm.
