Virtually all Divorce Related Transactions
including Attorney fees, 730 psychological Evaluations, Private (social
worker) Mediation, Therapy, Supervision, and Child Exchanges are paid by
Cash or Check, and sometimes by Credit Card. It is also important to realize
that virtually NONE of this money is reported to the IRS simply because NONE
of it is Tax Deductible. In addition, since almost none of these bills
are paid by insurance (i.e. Blue Shield, Aetna, etc.), therefore, almost no
family court officials, and/or court-ordered Specifically Named Service
Providers receive 1099 forms, since their bills are paid by cash or checks
by divorcing parents.
Therefore, at the end of each year the income
that these people have received -- often in the hundreds of thousands,
if not millions, of dollars -- may not be, and many think is NOT
reported to the IRS since there is no way to audit them.
For example, it has been estimated that
Stephen Doyne has performed from 3,000 -- 4,000 custody evaluations in
the last 25 years. So, for example, if the average
evaluation costs 15,000 dollars (?), this translates to $1.8 --- 2.25
million dollars a year in income
for this evaluator, just from 730 evaluations alone. This does not
include other services,
for example, therapy,
mediation, lectures, etc.
In the absence of FL326 and/or FL327 forms
that were both mandated to be filed at the clerk's office at the court
house, a paper trail vacuum was created, and thus the IRS and State
Franchise Tax Board have no way to accurately audit these officials for tax
And to this date, Nobody in the San Diego
Family court system has been held to account for this in the least bit:
other than that -- because a Robbed and Abused parent discovered the
'oversight' and complained (to other parents: who then went public) -- the
San Diego court was pressured to recently implement rules that were strongly
advised in 2001, and mandatory in 2005.
