ok, I will pay for this, and I apologize for panicking about the legitimacy of this site.
Can I further clarify?
My ex was pretending to have medical reasons for not returning to his still open job as an overseas military contractor. I agreed to no spousal support
, and instead just got the property division and a small lump sum in lieu. As soon as he signed the agreement in oct. 2011, he went overseas and started working. I had no control over whether or not he claimed taxes to be taken out (in the past, he has not had much taken out as he got the foreign earned income credit).. so he worked Nov & Dec, over there, and was prev. making $27k per month. I only make $35k per year. I have two kids from prev marriage, and the home is in my name (prev to 6 year marriage), and he quitclaimed his title over to me already. He of course wants the deductions. since he lived in the home until june of 2011, I agreed to give him one half of the int & re tax deduc, through that time, and this was what we requested. He in turn wanted to file jointly, and in order to finally get him to cooperate, I said yes, but the stipulation is that if he doesn't cooperate by march 31, than I get to file seperately. The wording is that we would file jointly, & he resp. for 2/3 of any proceeds or liab, and me 1/3. Maybe it is just talking about us filing together (i.e. both as head of household
) ?? Thank you for any further reassurance you can give me. My atty was soooo expensive, and I didn't get as much as I would have liked.
