tampa divorce lawyerQuestion:

In my divorce agreement, the judge ordered previous child arrears to be paid off monthly, which is garnished from my pay on top of my original child support payments.

However, my tax refund was intercepted from the Department of Treasury and issued to my ex-wife.

If there is a judge's order for me to pay off the arrears and payments are garnished, and thus not missed, can they still confiscate my tax refund?

tax tipsBy Jennifer M. Paine

Michigan Divorce Lawyer

It’s unlikely you can deduct your divorce attorney fees. However, some of the costs you incur as a result of your divorce may be deductible.

If you plan to itemize your deductions and your total miscellaneous deductions exceed 2% of your adjusted gross income, then you can deduct three types of fees.

advice on divorceQuestion:

I owe back child support so when I file my taxes, any refund is intercepted for paying off those arrears.

I have remarried and we now have children of our own. If we file taxes together, my ex-wife still gets all of our refund.

How can I file taxes so that my wife's deserved portion of our tax refund also does not go to support my ex-wife?

Omaha Nebraska Divorce LawyerQuestion:

The IRS is threatening to intercept my tax refund and apply it to my child support arrears.

Can the IRS take my tax refunds for owing back child support if I also am in arrears to another one of my child's mother?

mens divorce lawyerQuestion:

I just read your divorce tax tips article that said child support was not tax deductible, but alimony is.

My understanding is that unallocated family support payments are fully deductible by the paying spouse and fully taxable to the recipient spouse if the divorce decree specifies that the amount being paid is unallocated support.  

Is this true? Is unallocated support tax deductible?
