My ex filed for chapter 7 including debts he chose in our divorce decree. That left all the debt (including Fed. taxes) up to me. Is this legal? How would I be notified? The Fed taxes he was to pay included penalties and interest which was all garnished from MY wages because he didn't work. Can it all be so ez? What about child support still owed? Since he is now 65 and eligible for SS, can I try to collect from him? Maybe a Motion of his Contempt against the decree? ...since the debt was really to the government and not to me? I supposedly was named in his bankruptcy.
