1. So if I take her name off of the checking and savings account or take money out of the and put it under my name only would this stop the bank account levy?
3. true, homes are exempt from seizure but can a lien be placed on the house and if in the future the home is sold would some of the proceeds be taken to satisfy the judgement. (ex-husband is using this judgement to fund custody case in california that we filed, that is why I would like to fight this).
3a. does the 12% interest still accumulate until payment is made to her ex-husband? This would be in reference to the lien on the home because if the money is not paid will the initerest penalty come into effect i we sell the home.
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX like my options are:
1. negotiate with his attorney and maybe offer 50 cents on the dollar to start out with and move up from there. I'm sure he will have to check with his client and the client will say no!
2. Hide the money in accounts and don't allow for a tax refund in the future therefore prolonging him from getting the monies and being able to have additional monies for his attorney to fight us in the custody and visitation case in california.
or 3. pay the total judgement and put it behind me.
Is this a fair assessment on my part?
This will be the last question and ill rate after that. thanks for all your help.
