You are going to have to get bank records on a joint account.You have burden to show you paid and receive credit.If you can show deposits here or other records you will be fine.It is your burden since you agreed to pay this way.Honestly this is exactly what payments through child support avoids even if there administrative fees.

You need to access the account records.If you have too here you can subpoena them through your wife.But if its a joint account you should have access to the records.I am so sorry you are having to deal with this.

I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.I wish you the best.

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.
