Im going to court for child support on april 2nd to get it established.....will my stimulus rebate be taken?
there may be arrears but ive never gone to court for it yet
It depends on which state you live surrounded by.
If you live in 49 of the 50 states that are currently enjoying modern life contained by the 21st Century, then no.
If you live in Indiana in the 19th century, consequently I would say that there is a good fortune that it will be taken.
That is why you hold a lawyer. I hope you did get one to represent you, he would have answered that for you. If child support have not been established yet, how are you in arrears? Unless nearby is a previous court order in force, the support starts on the day it is ordered.
No. There is a long process in first establishing a support charge, and then there is a long process in taking export tax refunds/stimulus. They cannot take money from you that you have already gotten via a tax cancel out, they have to have the IRS send it too them to confiscate your tariff money this way. So if you already got your tax settlement it's definately safe as well.
You'll go to court surrounded by April, and even if they back date everything to a past date your stimulus check is still safe. It will whip several weeks for the cs office to update all of their records, contact your employer to start withholding, etc. etc. and to capture everything rolling on your case. Some cs agencies move quickly, others are VERY slow due to laziness or too abundant cases to manage.
In order for the cs agency to ask the IRS to offset your duty refund/stimulus they have to have asked them to do so by Oct/Nov of the year you are filing taxes for. They enjoy deadlines too. So since this order didn't even exist back afterwards, they have already missed their deadline to go after your refund/stimulus payments. Plus, if there is put money on support ordered, it depends on how much it is. Federal laws state that they can only offset a federal refund/stimulus if you owe more than $500 AND are 3 months at the back on your support. So it would also depend on how much those arrears are, on if they would even consider going after your taxes. State refunds vary from state to state on the amount and time required behind. But, surrounded by conclusion, you will not have to worry about an IRS balance this year, but if you don't have it caught up by next excise season, say goodbye to your tax refund.
If you owe back payment, it very very well may be taken.
