Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hello and welcome.
My name is XXXXX XXXXX my goal is to provide you with excellent service today. I am sorry to hear of your difficult situation. Before I can give you an accurate answer to your question, please provide the following additional information:
You are sure that it is a claim of defamation your attorney is concerned about if you report fraud/embezzlement by your husband to the company?
I look forward to assisting you as soon as I have received this information. Thank you.
I just left my attorney's office. He stated that my soon to be exhusband will be able to sue me for defamation of character. He did state, I will still receive my child support even if he loses his job, because he would lose his job due to his own actions.
I found out he had another personal bank account, stated only for expense checks/reimbursement from his company. He has been hiding joint marital assets (bonus checks, etc) and there were many large $1,000 a month cash deposits, and on-line deposits. In discovery he admitted to selling company merchandise on-line for profit. A fellow associate reported him to his employer, and the employer contacted me for information.
My attorney told me, my husband can sue me for defamation of character and I will have to pay my husband monthly support. This does not sound correct. Why I wanted a second opinion.
I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need so I will be compensated for my time from the deposit you posted with this website. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Thank you!
So, if I comply with their request and provide the documentation, I am safe? I have definite proof, from deposition statement, to bank account statements with the transactions and deposits posted.
Everything is unfortunately the truth, and all facts can be substantiated.
Divorce is set and on record. And I am not complicit in the fraud, and it has been eating at me for the past two months.
Thank you for you professional advice. And for confirmation I cannot be sued for defamation of character.
