My husband was court ordered to pay me child support
with arrears because our daughter used Medicaid after our divorce
. (I never requested the Attorney General get involved, wasn't my decision).
Fast forward to now, we are remarried. The case was signed off by a judge with arrears brought to zero dollars.
At this time we filed our taxes. Apparently everything wasn't yet closed on the child support divisions end. The IRS direct deposited our joint tax refund to the child support division on March 9th.
When I call the child support division, they tell me the refund shouldn't have been sent to them, so "when they get it" a check will be issued to my husband right away. However they keep saying they have not recieved our money yet, and "nothing is showing up in the system yet."
Any woman at the IRS confirmed what our IRS letter said, they were sent our money on the 9th, and they do have it.How long can they keep our money legally? How can they lie every day about having the funds? They say it takes 3-6 weeks for them to get the money, yet I see the IRS proof of a direct deposit. It makes no sense.
