Spousal support modification nightmare problem. Please help.
I ran out of money very quickly because my support orders exceeded my monthly income so I had to borrow money from my family (promissory notes). After I borrowed over $100,000, I was advised to borrow from friends since it looked "bad" that I always borrowed money from my family.
Friends didn't have enough $ so I had my family loan money to my friends so they could loan me money. The promissory notes were drafted with my friends' names, not my family, as I was advised.
Now my ex is taking me to court saying that the notes are false and that it should be regarded as part of my salary, stating that I'm filtering money from my brother's business (in which I was a 50% owner until I had to liquidate my share to him to pay the $300,000 equalization payment to my ex). What should I do?
