My soon to be ex husband hasn't been giving me my stimulus: Advice?

My husband and I are in the middle of a divorce. We are not on good terms. All of my stimulus payments have gone to his account, and he will not send them to me. Even this most recent one went to his account because they went by our 2019 taxes instead of this year. He blows up on me when I ask for my money. I am the one with the kids, and he just blows it all. Is there anything I can do, or am I just screwed out of my money?

I’m in same boat. Soon to be ex is getting it all too and refuses to give it to me even though I have my kids (they arent even his). So my lawyer is making it that when we go to court he gives me 2/3 of the stimulus. So get a lawyer asap and get your.money back

Pretty sure when you file your taxes for 2020 which you have until May now to do, it asks if you received them and you’re suppose to get them with your taxes if you didn’t. I could be wrong but when my mom did my taxes for me she called to make sure i had received them.

You can get it back paid to you when you file your taxes. Theres a loophole allowing both households (divorced and claiming child tax credit every other year) to receive stimulus money for the same child.

Yes, you can get all the checks resent to you. It has a name but I’m drawing a blank atm im sorry. But a friend of mine was able to do this, her situation was a bit different than yours, her daughter was with a family member but then returned to her home and the family member still kept receiving that and her ebt, other things… so she filed this and they reissued her all the checks sent to that point, neither have to pay it back or anything like that either, it was just a like loophole I guess you’d say

He can get in serious trouble for that, just gotta go to the right people, tell your attorney and you could probably call the IRS

Contact the I.R.S. immediately and report them. Mothers with kids thats not the husbands are not eligible for stimulus for the kids. Thats fraud and should be dealt with.

Talk to an attorney or a tax preparer to see what you can do. Even though you have the kids y’all are still married and will probably have to split all 3 50/50 which is fair.

Open a new account and change the stimulus into that account… any child tax he’s been collecting while the kids aren’t in his care had to be paid back to you if you can prove that the kids were with you at the time. (will need to be brought up during division of assets)

The only thing I can recommend is to call a lawyer. But since y’all are married and filed joint tax returns, you might just have to take this as a loss. Yes, it does suck. He’s being an ass but it is what it is at this point. Maybe if you get a divorce lawyer then you can somehow recoup some of the money as a part of your divorce settlement. Good luck.

File taxes by yourself & mark it when it ask did you receive the stimulus and you can get it that way- he can deal with the IRS on his end- even if you didn’t work much or at all you can file to get the stimulus money. It’s what I was told.

You’re SOL, unfortunately.

You have to mention only during your divorce.

Call a tax person. You should be able to file alone with the children. Then request the rebate. If they approve it and give it you then they’ll make him pay it back.

If you’re not on that account then yes there’s something you can do. If you are then nope you’re screwed. :woozy_face:

I’m dealing with the same issue. Dad who never sees the kids claimed them and won’t give me the money. :face_with_symbols_over_mouth::face_with_symbols_over_mouth:. I called irs they were no help. There is a paper you get off the irs website. Fill it out and send it in. You will get all the stimulus. And he will have to pay that all back to them.

Boooo hooooo my baby daddy didn’t give me my,$1400 nor my $300 for our kid hes driving a brand new car too. Itll come back on them

Is not the same situation but, my husband and his ex are alternating tax year for their child. This year my husband filed for her, and she asked for the money, he stays with the money because their paperwork says all child tax credit is for whoever is the person claiming her. She call family court, they told her that money is for whoever claim her in 2020 and if he doesnt owe child support (ehich he doesn’t) She call IRS they told her call family court. So theres no really support for them. But anyway my husband is staying with money.

Am sorry for taking your time. I just want to share my testimony on how i got my ex back. It happens that i have been having this issue with my husband that finally wreck my home. we have been married now for 13 years with 3 lovely kids and we were one big happy family until my husband went on a business trip with his friend in Prague. since he came back from that trip he started misbehaving, he goes out, come back late sometimes he will be gone for 2 weeks without saying a word nor call to check up on us. my Lovely husband suddenly became a stranger, he no longer create time for our kids talk less of having time for me. Early last year he packed few of his things without saying a word and left only for me to receive a letter of divorce from his lawyer. I tried to call him and sort things out but all to no avail i cried my heart out but help wasn’t coming from no where until i talked to a friend who introduced me to baba khoni . he told me great things about his and how he has helped her. So i decide to give her a try. he asked me few questions and asked me some certain things which i did grudgingly. and to my ought most surprise 5 days after i did what she asked me that my husband came begging and asking for my forgiveness which i did and we have been happy. Am so grateful for what baba khoni did for me that i promised to share my story, so as to help as many people out there facing problem. I can boldly say that baba khoni is good and can provide solution to any kind of problem you might be facing out there. You can

Contact the bank - tell them the stimulus has been credited to his account when your name is also on there - then they’ll freeze or hold the amount that is owed to you. You will have to go in person to get a cashier check cut and made payable to you, you will have to present your drivers license or ID.

your screwed out your money since he claimed you all on taxes, if he had them and you as dependents last year and this is a recent separation then he had every right to file and claim you all.

Do a stimulus payment trace with the irs. Take that took to court. It’s a federal offense if he keeps it

A coworker of mine is going through something similar and they went by their tax returns they filed when they were married the money went into her account and her attorney told her she had to give it to him because it was his.

He should give you your stimulus checks, but he should hold onto the kids as it hasn’t been court ordered for him to give it to you yet. Anything he gives you without a court order is considered a gift. The kids payments should be split, but since the divorce isn’t finalized bring it up in the next court date.

You can request a refund trace (Form 3911) to show that the stimulus check went to your spouse’s account or was cashed by your spouse. Document your calls to the IRS EIP helpline and your communication with tax professionals.

If the IRS develops procedures to help address this issue, you will have proof that you did not receive your stimulus payment and could perhaps request a replacement payment from the IRS. Document everything in addition to contacting a tax professional or tax clinic.
