In Connecticut, the judge can inquire as to the reasons for the sudden unemployment and set child support accordingly. You need to inquire not only into the reasons why she left her job but also into the efforts she has made to look for work. What headhunter firms has she registered with, when did she last update her resume (be a real prick, subpoena her computer), what firms has she applied to, what jobs have opened up that she DIDN’T apply to? If she quit her job to avoid paying child support, she could be in a world of hurt in front of some judges.
As for the defamation issue, the question is whether you can find an attorney to take the case AND whether she has any assets against which you can levy a judgment. Its nice to get a jury award, its even better for the defendant to actually have money.
Some of you know my case where I have been fighting for my children’s custody for almost three years now. I have been awarded custody by four judges already but she has been manipulating the system with appeals and delays to continue to receive child support and control situations. In GA when she appeals the decision reverts to the original decision.
I am at the end of the fight since she only has one more appeal, the one she has already filed to the Supreme Court. My son turn 14 this Friday and he has already ask to move in with me by next Monday and live with me. She is very aware that her chances to gain custody for my daughter is practically zero and that it won’t be long before they are both living with me.
All of the sudden, a career woman that makes anywhere between 50 to 80K+ a year, is unemployed. She has no job and is supposedly searching for one or possibly start a company where she will not be making money until the company is profitable. Clearly she is trying to evade child support payments. Does anyone know what courts think about a situation like this? What can I do?
Also, my ex is making a carrier out of bad mouthing me. I have been called everything from wife beater, child beater, scam artist, etc, etc, and worst. I truly can care less what she says. The problem is that she has done this with two day cares, plus the friends we had in these day cares, plus three different soccer team parents for my son, and even teachers at our children’s schools. I have gone from people really liking me and enjoying spending time with me to being a hermit and isolated. I go see my son play soccer and sit with the visitor team. I have even been fussed out by a soccer parent of what I am doing to poor little ex.
I truly give a rats a$$ what they think even though four judges have heard the whole story and not one side, but it is absolutely not acceptable to put my son on a situation where friends are questioning his Father and if what they heard is true. To make it worst, she talks bad about me to other parents in front of my children.
Is there any way I can sew her for slander or anything similar (defamation of character?)?
She needs to be stopped. I don’t care about getting money. If i did get money I would just pay my legal fees and put the rest on my children’s college fund.
Any good suggestions?
