Are you or your spouse behind on child support? If so then the IRS can seize any money you were supposed to get as a tax refund and send it to your local child support enforcement agency to cover the arrears. However the stepparent can stop the IRS from taking his/her portion of the tax refund by filing an Injured Spouse Form.
If my ex is denying me court ordered visitation / custody time because of COVID-19 can I get an emergency hearing with the court? The short answer is no. Almost every court has stopped hearing anything but emergency matters. A court is unlikely to hear it unless you have evidence that the children are in physical danger. If my ex is saying that he/she needs to suspend child support payments because of COVID-19 job loss, what are my options? The short answer is that child support is a court order, and the other parent is obligated to pay it.
