Recently, we were approached with inquiries regarding a difficult, normally expensive, and often impossible situation to deal with. A woman wanted to know what could be done for her daughter, whose ex-husband was lying about his income in order to avoid paying child support. What’s more, the ex-husband’s employer agreed to verify his false wages. The family knows for certain, however, that he is receiving cash “under the table”.
In this case, the daughter’s best plan of action would be to subpoena all of her ex-husband’s bank records. Of course, this means she would have to know where he banks, and with his current track record, he may well lie. Plus, it’s possible he was smart enough to know to not deposit the cash in the first place. On the other side, she could subpoena all his payroll records from his employer, but the money most likely won’t show up their either. The kinks in the armor lay with the guy who’s paying the ex-husband under the table and his bookkeeper. The only way to get to them, is again, through a subpoena.
