I am in the process of a SS Modification case where my ex has a live in male partner that she shares bank accounts, loans, insurance and home ownership with. Her Atty has filed a "Request for Admissions" document with the court that says the following:
"Based on the respondents income from employment, he has the ability to to pay spousal support awarded to Wife pusuant to the judgement of dissolution of marriage, Money Judgement entered on...(date of dissolution). I must answer True of False.
What are the ramifications of this, and can we object to the request? I have been paying the award for 5 years so it is obvious that I can pay it so indicating "no" would be looked at poorly, I presume. What happens if I "admit" that I can? What is the purpose of this request?
Thanks for your help!
