Thank you that is good to know.
If I file this motion myself, can you briefly walk me through what I will need to do? Another concern of mine is that ex will "doctor" his taxes and a solution to this is to request a tax schedule that can be sent directly to me (if I am a pro se litigant, or to my attorney, if I secure one). What do I need to do to request that my ex sign the IRS consent form to get me the taxes I want? Is it something I would need to file legally to request?
Also, our court orders state that he is to give me a portion of his bonuses according to a bonus schedule. He told me he didn't recieve a bonus last year. I don't believe him. I called his HR Dept and there is only a voicemail and no one will call me back. What do I need to do to get this information from them. I want his 2012 income and especially information on any bonus he recieved. What should I do?
Thank you that is good to know.
You make it all sound so easy. I'm actually going to do this myself since it's for time in the past, if I don't get (but I feel I will) then I won't have lost anything. About what you said in regards XXXXX XXXXX producing the tax returns, if he won't then do I have to file a contempt motion for his non-compliance?
Also, how do I get his employer to disclose his bonus information to me, if possible?
Steve, I'm drowning in debt and legal bills given that my ex has taken me to court quarterly over the past year. I appreciate your info more than you can know. Last question: When I ask my ex for his taxes what is a fair amount of time to give him to supply me with the information before filing a motion to compel?
Also just so you know, this plan has advised me not to start new threads for every question and informed me of their fair use policy which is why I asked my questions this way. Thanks for understanding.You have been fantastic!
Since he has a lawyer now can I send the notice to produce the document to his lawyer? and should I tell him that if not received within 20 days then I will file a motion to compel without further notice?Also is there a link to a good form to use for the "notice to purpose" that you can send me?
I'm not sure on the plan, it's been a while but checking back with C/S is a good idea. Thanks for wishing me luck. I do feel empowered.
