    • Concealed Income/Fraud
      Concealed Income/Fraud Case Resolved

      In a post-Judgment modification of support proceeding, BWBO moved to set aside a Stipulation and Order on behalf of their client, Husband, based on fraud committed by Wife in not disclosing her true income at the time the Stipulation and Order was entered. BWBO discovered that Wife had concealed her true income at the time the Stipulation and Order was entered, four years prior. Wife was actually making seven times the amount of income than what the Stipulation and Order was based on resulting in Wife receiving a windfall of support she was not actually entitled to. The court found that Wife had concealed her income and in doing so committed fraud. Based on the same, the court set aside the Stipulation and Order to Husband’s favor. The trial court’s decision was later upheld on appeal.

    • Judgment of Dissolution

This protected the Father’s custodial time with the parties’ 9 year old daughter.
