Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.
No she is not legally liable for his child support debt.It is his and his alone.She would want to file married filing separately because they can take his tax refund for arrears.As long as she does this she has no liability and they cannot take any refund due her separately if she files that way.This is solely his debt and that doesn't change if she marries.She wants to keep her funds separate and her tax return as well to avoid any problems.As long as she does this she will be fine here in Texas.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.
If you can psoitive rate when we are done it is always much appreciated.
