I owe a balance of Fed restitution. They sold my community property to pay of f part of it. Then I filed divorced. Since I have no income, the govt haven't asked me to make any payment since then (4 years). Two weeks ago I got married in Reno. Yesterday I received a letter from US govt to ask me to fill out the current financial statement forms. I live in CA but got married in Nevada. Does the recent marriage trigger them to ask for my financial status? We have no joint bank acct or joint name property but my husband has a house, 401k, and monthly salary. Can the gov't take any of his asset to pay my restitution? I don't want to fight with the govt. Does a prenuptial agreement regarding the separate asset and debt will help? Please help?
