He wont supply the returns. Says he has not filied since 2010 and indicates his status for 2011 will be married filing separately. What specific process or motion can be filed to make him comply? Also, when his taxes are court ordered, and show his lies, can adjustments in support be backdated to April when I initially filed for more support?
Great info, thanks. Sorry to asking for so much detail but I want to make sure I can ask for his tax returns (when he says he hasn't filed) - and it's his word against mine? Can I still request a motion to compel discovery based solely on disbelief? He has never failed to file taxes before and makes 85K+ per year.
