Does my soon to be ex husband have any legal claim to our 2012 tax refund if he didn't make any income and I file jointly?

Asked over 1 year ago - Indianapolis, IN

we were separated for 9 months but it's not a legal separation. our divorce will be finalized in one week. I'm trying to figure out if he can take me to court over the money if he made no income for the year.
