Spouse exonerated from husband's IRS debt.
My attorney was successful in exonerating me, the wife, from all IRS debt incurred by my husband. It was an extremely convoluted case that involved my signature being forged on documents by the husband and business partners and complicated nefarious activity. It was a long process, but ultimately resolved due to the brilliance of my lawyer! Her ability to resolve the situation was life-changing for me!!
