Would you spend $1500 if it meant you might get more spousal support?

I believe my ex has had a large financial gain in income (part owner of co.) and was advised to have his bank records subpoenaed. Do you think it's worth spending the money (I have found out that he has had several deposits made of tens of thousands)? What would you do?We have been divorced just under a year.

  • I would. You need to know all of his income, even if that means spending some of yours to find out

  • If your not doing it out of bitterness and for your kids yes

  • If you're doing it for your kids and you need it then yes I would, if you want to do it just because and are doing fine on your own then no I would let it go and get on with life.

  • There's just something about a man hiding money that really annoys me. If he was hiding that money from you during your marriage, I say go for it. If it's money he acquired during separation and divorce then I'd let it go. It really would depend on the past with him.
