  1. I don't understand. Why don't you just send over the 8332 with a stamped return envelope?

  2. Have you requested that your Ex sign the document. If she doesn't sign, you can file a Motion to Compel her to sign the document.

    The answering of this question is just friendly advise, and in no way legal advise. For legal advise you should contact an attorney with detailed information about your situation, so he or she can better assist you.
