I HAD A FRAUD INVESTIGATOR CALL ME AND STATE THE HE KNOWS THAT MY WIFE IS BACK LIVING AT HOME WITH ME AND OUR 3 KIDS. THIS IS NOT TRUE. I ALLOW HER TO COME BY AND SEE THEM WHEN SHE WANTS TO. I HAVE PROOF THAT SHE IS LIVING SOMEWHERE ELSE. I.E. RENTAL RECEIPTS. WHAT SHOULD I DO
Who does the investigator work for and why are they watching your home is what I would need to know before answering your question.
Our replies to Avvo questions should not be considered specific legal advice to any individual, and no attorney-client relationship is formed with you. Our aim is to provide general principles that may be useful to the Avvo community as a whole. You should seek individual legal advice pertaining to your specific factual situation, and the laws applicable to your jurisdiction.
You are receiving some form of welfare because you have three kids. If your wife is living in the home this would make you and your kids ineligible especially if she has income. You can contact legal aid. However, if you have nothing to hide, then you could certainly give them a statement that she does not live there. But you may want to consult a criminal lawyer before you state anything to the investigators.
I guess there is a point where visitation can be too much and seem like cohabiting.
This response is meant to be information only and should not be considered to be legal advice. This information is not meant and should not be construed to be the formation of an attorney client relationship. I practice Virginia Workers compensation law and Social Security Disability law.
If you have nothing to hide, then speak with the investigator. Make sure that you have all of your receipts, and that you read carefully any statements or forms that you sign. If you begin to feel trapped during the interview, end it and seek legal advice.
Our Rating is calculated using information the lawyer has included on their profile in addition to the information we collect from state bar associations and other organizations that license legal professionals. Attorneys who claim their profiles and provide Avvo with more information tend to have a higher rating than those who do not.
