  1. Glad your dad picked up on that info for you. I don’t know if we have such a thing in my country when I divorced but that was 30 years ago.

  2. Some positive financial news for you at of the divorce, for a change.
    Or at least a reversal of one of the negatives 🙂

    I am in this same mess. After filing, he went and amended the last 3 yrs af taxes. I got notices for 3k plys for several yes. I was blown away- he did taxes and always said we just broke even. Not only did I lose house, car and credit…. this is added. When I moved he failed to come get his belongings. I ended up taking a box full of his papers. To
    My surprise I was not wife #2 but #4, he always was a felon after having an incident with a swat team, and 7 domestic abuse charges and taxes from his previous yes with ridiculous deductions etc. heard through the grapevine that his new wife (yep, the mistress who was also married) filed injured spouse to help pay for his back taxes. Not sure what that means and do not understand how they filed together since not married until this yr. He also was ordered to pay all marital taxes for divorce yr. so he separated them out and had his half paid with her tax refund….. REDFLAG . I need to look into this…. thank you

    I have also been awarded tax relief but I am only a few days away from my 90 day waiting period and I just got a certified letter from the IRS and it scares me. Could it be a check? Could it be where he appealed? Just wondering, did they automatically start sending your money back or did you have to ask for it back?

      Oh I hear you on the fear of the certified mail. They first sent me a certified letter stating that it had been granted for one tax year. Then a second and third letter for two more tax years, respectively. The checks arrived (not through certified mail) within a month. I didn’t have to do anything once relief was granted to receive the checks.

      Crossing fingers for you! It’s a stressful process, I know.
