Gaming the court system with delays

How do I counteract my narcissistic ex husband with his delay tactics in submitting financials (credit card statements etc) My case has been continued 4 times. His objective is to drain me of money & not give me a dime. Obviously I will have to find a way to stop his nonsense. Any ideas? What’s the best way to handle someone like this?

The next time you are in court you can ask the judge to order your ex-husband to produce his financial documents by a certain date and time.

You can also submit discovery requests (i.e. request for production of documents) which requires him to respond within 30 days. And if he does not, you can file a motion to compel him to comply with the discovery requests served on him.
