  • How many days can my ex husband not pay child support on time that's stated in divorce decree?

    My ex husband and I got our final divorce decree in Jan. 2013 he has failed to pay child support for our 2 children on time which was ordered by the court to pay on 15th and 30th of the month can he be held in contempt of court by not following th...

    Wesley’s Answer

    Your divorce decree is the controlling document. If should clearly state when child support payment start and when they are due. An attorney can review your decreee and immediately tell you whether or not the decree has been violated. Personally, I would file contempt a contempt action immediately. This is not a good start for him and probably speaks volumes about what you will face in the future. The longer you wait the bigger the arrearage gets the harder it will be to collect. I suggest you file contempt charges immediately. They are relatively easy to file and from what you said, it appears you already have grounds for a contempt charge.

    Wesley’s Answer

    The IRS can most definitely come after your home. This happens quite often because that is where many people historically speaking have some equity. As already mentioned, there may be some protection under the innocent spouse rules. If you are considering a divorce, the tax issue may be settled inconjunction with your divorce. Your divorce attorney should be able to guide you to a tax attorney if the firm you choose does not already have someone on stalf that can assist with this. I recommend you take some sort of action and get professional help as soon as practicable.

  • I live in GA and got married in SC . . . where do i file . . if spouse is missing

    divorce

    Wesley’s Answer

    If you have been residing in Georgia for six months, and you do not know where you spouse is and want a divorce, you would file in the Superior Court of the County you reside it.

    You can get a divorce even if you are unable to locate your spouse. Giving notice to a missing spouse is a bit more difficult but you can notify them by publication. This simply means that you will have to run an ad four a certain amount of time usually four consecutive weeks in a publication approved by the County in which your reside.

    I would be happy to assist you with this process or answer any questions that you may have. You may contact me at (404) 396-1716 or (404) 228-8103 to speak with me.

    Good luck!

  • Filed a joint tax return this year. He worked and I didn't, but I had our newborn. He owes almost $5,000 in child support..

    Will they take our entire refund or am i as a mother entitled to credit for the baby? I gave birth to him and stay home and raise him. i feel i am somewhat entitled i guess... Any help?

    Wesley’s Answer

    This is commons scenario. The best approach is to file married filing separately. This way his burden would not become yours. This could possibly have made you would not receive refunded tax payments since you did not work, however it is possible that their are some refundable credits that you would have been elegible for. Seeking relief as an injured spouse is a good suggestion. I would also consider filing amended returns to see if you can make some recovery that way.

    Good luck!

  • My estranged husband of owes 300,000 dollars in unpaid royalties to the Air Force. what consequences will he face. am I liable

    I have no involvement with his business. he also owes 170,000 dollars in unpaid employee withholding taxes. what is my liability

    Wesley’s Answer

    Without more facts, no one knows. It would be wise for your to seek counsel from a tax attorney who could advise you on possible exposure you face. He may or may not be able to assist with the royalty question but could probably glean enough facts from your conversation to point you in the right direction. If I was you, I would retain counsel right away.

    In my opinion you would be setting yourself up for legal issues or possibly fraud charges. Better to sleep well at night knowing you were honest.

    Without knowing you total tax situation for the period being audited it is difficult to give you guidance. However, it sounds like your situation is complicated enough that you should have a CPA or a tax attorney representing you in the discussions. Good luck!

  • My ex husband was a victim of identity theft and is now being reimbursed by the IRS we filed jointly at the time of the theft

    am I entitled to any of the reimbursement ? it is 78k

    Wesley’s Answer

    Without any facts, no one can give you an answer. If you include some facts including a timeline of what occurred, when it occurred, your marital status at the time it occurred, etc, you will have a better chance of getting a meaningful response.

  • When there is a will , and real estate property has to be divided 5 ways , does it have to go through probate court ?

    according to a will, a house was supposed to be divided 5 ways, can the executor not go through probate court and "give the house" to one of the 5 persons, without probate?

    Wesley’s Answer

    Your questions leaves out some details. If there was more than one piece of real estatae and this house passed outside the will by some sort of joint tenancy with right of survivorship it may be possible. More details and a review of the documents would be necessary to give you a conclusive answer. Best wishes!
