I wish my husband (we recently married) had known this before his court date. The judge was prejudiced against him from the beginning and even the attorneys and the mediator said “the judge does not like you.”
There were numerous false accusations and manipulations by his wife, including theft and hiding tens of thousands of dollars for which she never had to account for… He ended up having to give her cash (10k)in the end and he got ALL of the bills from her cash advancing/maxing out several credit cards, and the tax bills over 40k (money she stole from the business account).
His credit is shot. He had a job change just before his divorce was final (2/4/10) (He had a well paying Y2K computer related job which of course ended before this year)He went from 250k a year to 80k a year last December… and the judge knew for over a year that this would be happening.
He made the child support and spousal support based on his prior salary. We have lost a boat, a motor home, and the car is going soon. The judge put in a bankruptcy clause so that is not an option. We are literally living in poverty while the ex is not working and getting 3,500.00 a month in support for herself and daughter.
My two boys go without lunch at school because there is no money. I have had the phone disconnected for non payment, creditors constantly calling. My husband just got laid off and now the “Friend of the court” is taking him to court next month for contempt because we are unemployed and too broke to pay support.
I took out a large loan recently to pay for our food and his child support because my husband now has bad credit. That is almost gone already. How can this be legal??? Is there anything that can be done? The divorce took place in Michigan but we had to move to Florida a year ago to find work that payed enough to support the former wife. He’s already over 10k in arrears. obviously it is impossible to pay the ordered amount even if he were still working to the tune of 80k and with all of the debt.
Legal RAPE is what it is! Not to mention unconstitutional. Does anyone know of anything we can do??? What happened to community property states?
