    Answered . Only HFS can intercept. Otherwise you have to timely file (ie, just before tax season starts) for turnover of his refund vis a vis a rule to show cause.

    Answered . Once the tax refund hits his bank account, the only way is to garnish his bank account pursuant to the child support judgment. The State's Attorney can also intercept tax returns. You should speak to an attorney about ways to collect the arrearage. Please feel free to call my assistant Dan London at 312-807-3990 to set up a private telephone consultation with me. The consultation is entirely confidential and we can formulate a strategy on your case. These details should not be discussed over the Internet.
