Joint State And Federal Tax Refund Taken For Ex Spouse Arrears
Ex executed voluntary IDO. Because monthly support is deducted bi-weekly, State of GA showed him in arrears, as they calculate the "monthly" support due. At end of 52 weeks, annualized amount is same. They seized tax refund that ex pledged to me (100%) in final divorce decree - have signed order. Now CSE will not release to me for 180 days, but have given him full credit, erasing arrears. Also, his employer is not deducting full amt. Every pay period....and it's not related to maximum % of salary allowed by fed law.
CSE will not accept Final Divorce Decree re: all refund being mine. Says they can release full amt to him, I can hire atty & hold him in contempt, as he would once again be in arrears.....and I thought they were supposed to represent me to collect support! I can file with IRS as injured spouse, but since he made more $ than me in 2008, IRS I would not get an equal split of joint refund, which I don't understand.
Any comments or suggestions would be welcomed. Can't afford another incompetent attorney. Already down $12K
