Also a family law question. ... How do i get a judge to

Also a family law question. ...How do i get a judge to agree bah and bas as income. I have read an article on -in re marriage of stanton. My ex has chosen to live on base. He also fraudulently used my name as his spouse to gain access to live in base housing. We were legally seperated 3.4.14. He signed the rental agreement with me as his spouse 1.13.15. We do have 2 children. We are in California. Also, i believe he may have lied about his income. He only submitted 3.31.16 les. We went to court 5.9.16. He did not submit 4.31.16 les. I found out his line number for msgt was in april.
