Which brings us to: Do you JUST need to have proof to the judge that the money is for a good cause (i.e. earmarked for kids college or medical emergencies, etc.) OR that you actually have to have the money hidden away from your ex's greedy eyes??

Both. I am an immigrant, in danger of losing my Visa status and need to shift to student Visa (read: MS program) ASAP. If I don't, and I am kicked-out of the US, I will lose custody of the child. So, now I have a 2-fols agenda.. to *hide* money to secure enough to be able to arrange a student loan or something for my own Ms program, or any other emergency thatmay arise in, if something happens to my parents in India & I need to visit India in a short notice. ($12oo-$1500 per ticket, plus one month's rent=$1360 plus other bills to cover one month - utilities, cell phone etc -- totals to about $3K with over cautious approach)

Also, I need to save for my kid's college coming-up in 14 years or so. his dad obviosly has no concern for the child's welfare other than he that won't have to pay child support if he has custody. Period.

I would have happily forgone child support if that would get him off my back, but I do need the money. I was hoping to save all his child support payments in the child's college fund, and save my salary for my own college ed. But, I want to hide the kid's fund too from his Dad, else he will force me to pay him out of that too for all the various things that keep happening between us..


Tired & disgusted with the relentless warrior,
