Request for income verification from self employme


#1

He is legally entitled to request any documentation that would prove what your income is, the documents he requested could arguably be considered to used to determine your income, the period of time may be excessive. If you believe the amount of documentation he has requested is excessive, you can file a motion for a protective order and ask the court to determine what documents they believe it is reasonable for you to produce.

Hi,
My ex is trying to get a CS modification. I am self employed. Can they demand to get my corporation (I am self employed)bank statements?

thedefendant,

Yes, they can seek financial documents from the corporation if you are the party that owns it.

I am trying to get child support. My ex is “self-employeed”, only working construction for one company, sounds like his employer (excuse me, he is not EMPLOYED by him) wants to get off easy with 1099-ing people. Anyway, boss will not fill out employment verification since he is 1099. Ex has no bank account, will claim all his money goes to gas, has history of lying to IRS, court, judges. Both he and his girlfriend have told me what he makes and his non-boss also told me verbally approx what he makes each week (another employer/employee relationship payment setup). I have not been able to record any of this. Can I use any of this? He will deny making that much in court. He told me he does this on purpose so I can’t get child support. If and when I finally do get him in court, I am afraid he will mysteriously have “not had any work lately” and will be “broke”. How do I nip this in the bud? He has worked 1099 or under the table most of his life, all the while collecting unemployment whenever possible.

I am seeking to modify child support. I live out of state and am having my local child support agency persue modification (UIFSA). I am self employed (manicurist). Ex is an airline pilot. He has hired an attorney and promised to bury me in paper work etc and that it would not be worth my while to continue with modification. Well I am in receipt of atty’s request and he is asking for deeds, appraisals, closing statements, executed contracts,employment contracts, business ownership interest, monthly bank statements, cd’s etc for the past 5 years… copies of all credit card statements for the past 2 yrs, financial statements, loan applications for loans or credit w/i past 5 years, sales contracts involving auto, homeowners insurance, hoa, tax bills, ok… so the list goes on and on and on… Isn’t this a bit excessive? What is within his legal right? If I have to provide all requested doc’s but can’t, what happens? His atty has sent a copy to the local DA also. Ex told me he would bury me in paperwork, report me to the IRS, have DA investigate me etc etc etc. Hmmm, some good, sound advice would be helpful. thanks much
