We both live in California. He filed false income/expense declarations with the court. I know for a fact because his Profit/Loss and IE Declaration did not match his business deposits. When I called the discrepency out in my response I received an e-mail the next day from his lawyer responding to my previous request for check registers. "he doesn't keep check registers but he printed out all this other information for you....in the course of doing so he stumbled across a discrepency between documents, and corrected and resubmitted his P/L for you. I applaud his character..." (BLECH!)
The numbers still don't mesh and are under reported by about $7000.00 year to date. They were almost $30,000 off before! Is that enough information for the judge to impute earnings based on his business deposits, or do I have to have some other information to prove capacity to earn vs what he reports to earn.
FWIW, I know it may not matter in court, but his parents purchased his house after the divorce so he has no rent/mortgage to be responsible for. He remarried and his new wife makes over $6000. per month, so even if by some stretch of the imagination he was earning very little money, he certainly doesn't have any incentive to quit being self employed and get a job working for someone else.
