How to confirm that my husband has a love child he is hiding from me

Lawyer's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

He has an exgirlfriend who he has been cheating on me with. Just found out she was pregnant and had a child. he claims she is married and that this pregnancy was for her significant other. At the time I had no idea about the cheating. Now I find out that his tax returns statement much less taxable income than eveer before and I suspect that went to pretax child support payments. how do I get data to help me with knowing for sure

Thank you for your patience as I looked into this.

Court proceedings, unless sealed, are a matter of public records. As such, one can go to the courthouse in the county where either party resides, and look up family law paternity/custody cases by last name. This can help determine if there is an order of paternity.

Child support payments are not tax deductible so that would not affect one's taxable income, even if there was a garnishment.

Thank you for using Just Answer.
I hope the information I provided is useful. If you need further clarification please post here and I will reply as soon as I see it; otherwise, Kindly
