Thank you for your reply.
If his name is ***** ***** account, the legal presumption is the money in the account belongs equally in its entirety to both joint holders of the account, so that is why they can levy the account. So, you have to file in court to waive those arrears based on you having the custody during that period of time they are seeking arrears for if that is the case. This is why the judge told you to get an attorney because they will need to file a motion for the return based on you having custody during that time. This is why people are told when there are child support issues with a spouse to keep money in separate accounts, because anything his name is ***** ***** fair game to be levied, since it is considered legally as belonging to both of you.
