fraud

June 22nd, 2010 by Questions

my exhusband moved out unexpectedly to live with another woman. He stopped contributing to our household and I was granted an interim order to support household expenses until it sold, which he did not pay. He refused an offer in Dec. 08 that would have led to a shortfall of 5000$, no commission. In Jan 09, he accepts an offer 11000 less (I did not accept), with 6% commission and 10 days later claims bankruptcy. I was able to negotiate with buyers, banks, agents etc and was left with a shortfall of 20000. in addition he left me with close to 70000 shared debt. I sought and have been granted an interim spousal support order. Recently his girlfriend (same as above) put her house up for sale. In the past 2 years since he has been there, she has put on a new roof, redone hardwood floors, re furnished top to bottom, new tvs, computers, new bathroom etc. As she was my friend, i know what she paid for the house, her income etc and it is only possible she did this with his income. my question is given the timelines, it is very apparant he was not paying me (as court ordered), was running up debt (likely as a result of all these renos and household purchases) and then made a claim of bankruptcy. If all this could be proven, is this an act of fraud?

Fraud is a complicated legal issue and one that we cannot even begin to dissect in a forum as this. What you need to do is to contact a lawyer. They will be in a much better position to be able to advise you whether or not you have a valid argument that actions taken were fraudulent and what potential recourse you may have.
