Prison, fines and loss of assets face husband for divorce-related fraud

There is perhaps no such thing as an easy divorce but some are certainly more complex than others. Houston couples who have wrestled with family law issues surrounding child support, spousal support and more understand how easily a bad situation can be made worse. For most people, the challenges of a divorce are confined to settlement agreements. However, other people must endure even further problems.

Such was the case for one woman in California who endured years of fraudulent behavior on the part of her husband during and after their divorce. The situation grew to such proportions that the ex-husband was recently sentenced to nearly 18 years in prison for bankruptcy fraud. His actions were designed to hide assets to prevent his need to pay child support or other monies to his former wife.
