What state is this? And is it $9000 or $10,000?
well, after the 24 months of paying me $20 a month, i assume its somewhere in the middle, $9,500 or so....The state is Ohio. thank you
If he is not paying, then what I suggest you do is file a Contempt Motion - this you can do on your own, then during that hearing ask the Judge to reduce the Order to a Judgment. Ask the judge to not put a stipulation on the amount a week payable.Once you get the judgment then you need to file for wage garnishment in the clerk's office. I hope that this information is helpful. If you need further information, please just send me a reply asking for clarification. After that, I hope you will enter a positive rating so that I will be credited for assisting you. Also, be sure to verify this information with a local attorney who is familiar with your local laws and procedures. Thanks again for using this service. Your business is appreciated.
would i need a lawyer dto do that? my husbnand pretends to make less money than me , but always manages to afford aggressive lawyers. If i walk in without a lawyer i know i will lose. Thats why I thought small claims was possble.
ok, so i ask to reduce it to judgment.But how do i stop him from sending $20 a month? I think his lawyer wrote it inj a way that allows him to do that (for instance a percentage of his take home pay). He hides all his money under his dads name and pretends to make less money than a drive thru employee. Is there a way I can appeal to a judges common sense ? It seems non existent. Everyone knows its what he is doing , and yet on paper he gets away with it because i cannot afford $15,000 for a financial forensics examiner.
