Was divorced, from a 30 year marriage, in Bergen Cty, NJ, 3

Resolved Question:

Was divorced, from a 30 year marriage, in Bergen Cty, NJ, 3 1/2 yrs ago. The settlement stated that I was to receive 1/4 of promissory note payments that were to be received by my ex's business. These notes were to be my only source of income. My ex had his partner "in crime" refinance the mortgage and created another entity which left me and my son out in the cold. There is a warrant out for my ex's arrest but he moved to FL and now seems to be untouchable. I had tried to garnish one of his other payments through another one of his companies but the family court judge said that I wasn't entitled (?). Though the judge ruled that my ex owed me in excess of $300,000.

Thanks for your question. This guy is a pro here. You will have to keep chasing him here and hope you get lucky like you did with the cars. I would hope that either New Jersey decides to extradite here or that he gets pulled over and they honor the warrant.

I think that your best chance here is to try and persistently bother the Florida law enforcement to pick him up on the warrant. Maybe you take a trip down ther and see if you can accomplish this in person.

There is an active warrant. They ought to pick him up long enough to see if New Jersey here won't spend the money to transport him back.

Only by incarcerating him can I see that you will be successful in forcing him to pay up or at least partially here. Your other alternative is if the lawyer in Florida here can locate some more assets.

Stay after him here its the principal here as much as the money. I do wish you good luck in this matter and certainly admiration for staying the course here..

Thanks for your support. I should add that my ex is a tax attorney. Layering is the name of his game.
