Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

In order to go after him, you would have to prove he is working off the books and where. Without the evidence of where he is getting his money, the court could not issue any orders to seize the money. Same with the banks, if he has accounts in someone else's name you have to prove who and where the accounts are and would need to show the court that it is merely him putting money in an account in someone's name to hide it from you and the court.

There are some private investigators that specialize in financial tracking, but you would need to find one locally to do that for you as that is the only way you can get the information necessary to bring him to court for contempt and have the court levy his assets that you found. Otherwise, you can still bring him to court for contempt and ask the court for jail time based on criminal non-support.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback by clicking on the 5 stars at the top of your page, as the experts are not employees of the site and get no credit for spending time with customers unless they leave positive feedback. Thank you.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
