Ex got on welfare to avoid paying child support – is this fraud?
Is this fraud?

So my ex owes child support and has 50% custody of my child. When we split, he was the higher wage earner and had his own business, and made more money than me. I was unemployed and didn’t want to file for welfare assistance. So I hit him up for child support.

He disregarded the support order and didn’t pay, was $ 5k in arrears when the Child Support Agency decided to take him to court for contempt. He has not paid his taxes or child support for 3 years because he is self employed and doesn’t claim his income.

In order to stop possible jail sentence from the Child Support Agency, he files for government assistance – Medical, food stamps and cash aid. He is eligible for the aid based on the information he provided the worker, so child support stops going after him.

Now Child Support is after me and my wages, and when I asked my ex if he knew they were going after me – he said, “Drop your child support case and I’ll get off aid and the state won’t go after you. I want you to sign a letter and give it to Child Support”

He clearly doesn’t need the government aid, as he’s bragged about getting large accounts with big firms, and was doing all of this to retaliate against me. What should I do?

You show the Child Support Agency your custody agreement, showing he pays child support. Tell him to request his tax returns, and tell them he is self employed. Can you verify any of his clients? I’d also report him to the IRS for tax fraud…

I’d start recording conversations. Get him on tape saying “Drop the case and I’ll get off aid, etc.”

But I’d get an attorney and get joint custody where he only gets visitation… Not this 50/50 crap. That’s actually very hard on the child.

he said, “Drop your child support case and I’ll get off aid and the state won’t go after you. I want you to sign a letter and give it to Child Support”

Is this in writing in an email?

You can’t prove any Fraud with out Financial Documentation of his business and clients. He has not paid his taxes because he is self employed and doesn’t claim his income.

This is some thing that needs to be discussed with a Lawyer.
