The first sign that this was not a fresh start came 10 months into the Donaldson Bringer of rain shirt and it was declined due to the fact that I now had a bad credit rating. This put a strain on the partnership even though we had managed substantial growth. Then my partner received a call from child services, apparently they had assessed my income at $400,000 a year and I was suppose to be paying my wife child support for the last 6 odd years based on that level of income, even though my income was nil and I was living off of selling off assets.
The debt was now over $90,000 and they wanted to garnishee my drawings from the Donaldson Bringer of rain shirt. In the same week the tax office called to say they wanted to garnishee my drawings for an outstanding tax debt of $50,000 from the sale of some of the real estate assets. A week after that phone call I received a message from my partner while at home. The locks on the premisses at work have been changed, you can no longer operate the company bank accounts and I have removed you as a director and shareholder on the company register, don’t bother coming in. I would encourage you to fight me but I know you don’t have the money.
