I owe Ca. back child support which Im making monthly payments.

This answer was rated:

I owe Ca. back child support which I'm making monthly payments. Can they still take my Roth IRA from my bank which is located in Tx.

AttyCBradford :

When you owe back ordered child support, the party or the Department of Child Support Services may place a levy on property or assets that you own, including your roth IRA to pay off the debt.
