Is it possible to get my husband to put in writing that he will not request half of the tax refund I will get this year even if
My husband and have been living separately. He lived with me for atleast six month of the tax year so this should allow us to file together. He has no income as he receives ssi. He has agreed to signing to the tax documents as a married couple .im afraid that he may ask for half however at time of divorce when I do file for it this spring.Is there anything I can do that may help me with that. I do not think he even deserves it at all. We were only married for two yrs. He has not seen nor supported his daughter in about 7 months. Not one attempt such as trying to get a court order or taking himself down to the child support office to set up payments which I know a father can do if he wants to make sure that I get payments so he can cover himself with that.
Your question involves several different issues. As regards the income tax refund, I agree with the prior responding attorney. With regards to the child support, you should consider going to the Florida Department of Revenue Child Support Department in your local area and imposing a child support obligation by Court Order. I would not wait for the Husband to file, he has no motivation to do so. You may also want to consider moving forward with a dissolution of marriage and bringing the relationship to a conclusion by a Court Order so you may protect yourself and your child in this situation. Best of Luck.
You can agree to anything between the two of you. I would recommend when filing tax returns that you put your bank information as the one receiving funds. Then you have all the funds.
As a married couple currently filing jointly you both have 100% right to that return so you are well within your rights to keep it.
