From my divorce judgement, I owe my ex approximately $20K. I was unemployed for an extended period of time: and did not have the funds to pay after making payments for child support and basic living expenses. Now that I am caught-up, I have been giving my ex checks as installment payments. I am basically giving her every extra amount that I have from each paycheck (i.e. $200-1,000) every two weeks. She is not cashing my checks and so I asked several times in writing and could not get an answer. I believe she is doing this just to continue to cause high conflict. How could I document payment if she will not take it? Also, the checks that I am writing need to be cashed timely as if there are extra funds in the bank, child support services sweeps my account periodically for the past due support from when I was unemployed. That has been resolved, but I am unable to keep large amounts in my bank to back the eventual $20K in checks. Should I just get money orders? Send to her Attorney?

Marlene’s answer: Make sure the checks are properly notated and send them to the attorney. Also, write the attorney and list out the checks you have provided and not cashed. Please ask him to advise why the checks have not been negotiated.

Marlene’s answer: It is up to the leasing office. Most residential leases specify the number of parties they are leasing the premises to.
