so my wife left me on 5/16/20202. I had been served with papers for child support on the two kids that were living with me on 4/28/2020. My wife also has been living with me since 2016. After we had our first son in 2016 she filed for Food stamps and Medicaid. She did this behind my back and i had no idea. Well i end up finding out and didn’t ask her how she got them. come to find out she was and had been lying since 2016 and saying she was living with her mother. when she left on the 16th she held the kids hostage and would not let me see them until there was a custody agreement. well i typed one up and it got signed off by a Judge. I have the kids every other week from Sunday to Sunday. So now i go to court for the 3rd time on September 3rd.
What i want to ask is should i report her fraud to social services?
Does the state even care about this? My lawyer that i fired and and the new one that i’m about to fire said they are not pursuing any back pay. Which seemed odd to all of us. I had told my wife she better make that right cause we had been together the whole time and i took care of the kids. Is she in trouble already?
Why would she hire a lawyer for the child support case when the state is going to represent her anyways?
She will not talk to me about anything. The separation or divorce. What do i do? All lawyers cost for a consultation and i never feel reassured or like they are telling me everything i need to know. Like they are trying to get every dime out of me they can.
How do i trust a lawyer?
