Yes, the judge saw right through my lying ex. He tried to explain his delay in payment by telling the judge that he was 'under durress' when he signed off on the settlement agreement. He also tried to explain how 'poor' he was having three kids now (two with her and adopted a son - previously relationship that the tramp had) and only 'making so much money'. Well, when he decided to sign the agreement he was 'happy and in love with the woman of his dreams, his one true love' on his FB page. He knew what his financial obligations were when he signed the agreement (second child on the way). His BS about not having 'enough legal counsel to guide him' was also BS. He easily could have waited for his deployment to be over (when he got back in the US) and discussed the terms of our agreement then. But, instead, like he does everything stupid in his life, he leaps before he looks.
The judge ruled:
1. My ex has to pay me the rest of the loan (embezzlement) within 7 days.
2. My ex has to start paying monthly payments as agreed to in the original settlement.
3. Judge tacked on 12% interest to the 9 months of backowed money.
4. My ex will be put in contempt of court if he falls short after a few months (six months) of payments. So, he has to pay the agreed to amount and not cut short what he wants to pay.
5. Has to reimbursement me for atty's fees within 90 days.
6. IF he does fall short he will be put in jail.
So, basically, my ex faces three jail times if he doesn't pay up. I'm keeping my atty informed of ALL payments. I really need that first payment so I can help my daughter pay her college fees so she can be reinstated into her college.
My daughter lost a scholarship because of my ex. She had to pay $1k back to the university because she was given money for the SOAR program. Because she needed this money for books, etc., she cashed the check. Since she never got money from her father, she had no choice but to use the money to pay for her books, etc. Now that my ex owes me that money I will be able to pay my daughter. That is IF he pays me. That money is sorely needed right now.
My judge was female. LOVED her! She saw right through my ex and his BS. Her last question to the ex was to clarify three kids - two he said he made with the tramp within one year (affair). Add that to being a deadbeat and she had no other choice but to rule on my side. It took her two secons to figure out an affair was also the cause of my marriage breaking down.
I'm holding my breath for the money owed within the next 7 days. I WILL force jail time if the ex loser/scum doesn't pay me. I've been waiting for nearly 2 yrs for this money.
Oh, my ex had an atty. So, he can afford an atty but not have enough money to pay me? LOL! His atty sucked.
