Hello all!

I have a very revengeful ex who has nothing better to do than to make me pay, literally, for all the real and imagined harms I did to him/his family in divorcing him. As I have a very low income, I am trying very hard to save money for our only son's college ed. My ex is not at all interested in that, has no court order to save for college, and hinders me saving money too. My question is, is there any way I can "hide" the money from him - can I invest it in some bonds/bank accounts whatever so that he can't find-out how much money I'm saving.

I do know that when he sees a low bank balance, he sits quietly. When he sees it going high, he starts to drag me in court on flimsy grounds. With attorney costs $250 an hour(this is the average for SFO Bay Area, where I live), I lose $1K per hearing.

And, he gets to see the bank balance by subpena-ing the records. (I don't know how you spell subpena)

Any advice?

- Donna
