In the 4 years since our divorce, my ex-spouse has not fulfilled any of the obligations he was ordered to within our decree: splitting the property taxes, HOA dues and fines for land in Glacier, WA, & splitting IRS back taxes from his failed business. Because he surrendered his US status (inc. social sec) & moved back to South Africa, IRS says I have to pay 100%.
I am paying 100% of all taxes & fees for the land & my credit has taken a huge hit from his portion due to the IRS. Someone suggested that some states allow for a spouse to be awarded a property when the other spouse abandons fiduciary responsibility from the decree. I feel 100% of the hardship while he stands to benefit from any future valuation/sale. Lastly, how can I collect his 50% IRS $ if I cannot locate him in SA?
