My ex was given the house during the divorce. she was to retain all of the profit. She then was ordered to pay me $4500 in attorney fees. She has yet to pay the fees after 9 mos which passed her deadline to pay me. She also has no job and I will never see that money. She has also refused to pay child support for the last 9 mos.The house sold in September. I just received checks in the mail for the escrow, and insurance overages since the house was always in my name alone for the loans. Can I cash the checks and keep the money deducting it from what she owes me. They total about $1800. At least it is something towards the $4500. The Final Orders clearly state she owes me the money and had until December of 2012 to pay me.
