Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hello and thank you for your question. For over 34 years I have answered questions just like yours. And I look forward to assisting you.
If your husband signed your name, you have a valid excuse. But if you signed, and have now discovered the fraud, you will need to contact a CPA who is an enrolled IRS agent (ask when you call) and he will represent you. But likewise, going this route, I also assume that you are taking an adverse position to your husband which includes continuing your marriage. Regardless, at this point, since the IRS is not suing you, this is not a legal problem and is best handled by a CPA.
No we are divorced, and I never saw the taxes he always brought home jst the back copy of what we would get back. I didnt work so my income was not on the taxes. Not to mention the business he is claming to have and the 100k worth of equipment he sold and took a deduction of 11000 this year on it. I only finally was given a copy of my taxes because he kept them from me and black mailed me into divorce, because i accidentlay found his ss number on something else, he was always hiding money and I never saw the checking account or never had any access to any money but now I find myself in a child support mess he feels he doesnt have to pay support for our kids and is then saying he will file a custody suit agaisnt me so he doesnt have to pay support. its all about money. meanwhile my rent has not been paid he was to pay this for me until may of 2013 after whihc support would be looked at, well nothing and i am sitting here almost ready for eviction, now he going after me for support and then i stumble upon these documents in the process. what can i do, can i use this against him? he is claiming to make 7k per year!!! we spent that in one weekend. hes buying all this stuff brand new and paying 850 in rent up until may 2013. 7k per year? also this was not brought up in our divorce at all. do I have any claim to have that thrown out. i got nothing he bullied me into a divorce and made the order so screwed up child support officers are confused. but also can I use this to my favor in custody? can he really get custody? seriously he told me via text message he would give me 500 per month to hand over full custody of my kids. he also sent a request to the judge in my upcoming hearing 2 weeks after he was served child support papers that he was going to be filing for full custody. custody was established a year and a half ago and has never been a problem sicne.. please help

would it be wise to try and settle this out of court? he was trying to keep his our taxes a secret for years, not only did he state he made one amount in a divorce decree and claimed another on our taxes he said on our taxes he had business up and running that he sold 8 years ago to claim depreciation on his equipment. I thought you could only use a loss in value if you were using the property at the place of business. also we had a daughter on state insurance and he mom signed something stating his income that was also a different amount than our taxes. how should i start going about this. I would like to stop it in its tracks before it even get filed with the court. what could be the penalty for him because of this fraud. Its not hard to see as soon as you look at all the taxes that he is a snake. I am shocked actually the tax place cooked the books so much. appalled actually
this is the other thing i am confused about he uses one ofhis business taxes in our family taxes personal tax he says he gets 110k but them claims a loss on it of 100k can he do that? thats his business how can you claim a loss on pour personal taxes like that? and i know for a fact its all bull that being said we made total of 10k that year and our house payments were 2300k per month, so i ask a judge for an audit or what should i do. im not really worried about the money but my kids. I am a good mom and he just ants to not pay spport. as you can see he has a problem with paying people he owes money too so thats his claim for custody. our tazes are like this for 4 years so I can onli imagine they have always been done this way
would this be the same for a prenump as well? about disclosure? and for the discovery do I do that after everything else first?
