Recently my Husband was contacted by the DHR, child support admin. 'recoupment' divison. The letter received was notifiying him that he was sent monies in 1999 and 2000 as a tax intercept from his x-wife who was ordered to pay child support. There was no documention provided. Only the threat of sending his 'account' to collections if the money (1,556.00)was not paid. After many calls, made all the more difficult during the holidays, he finally was told that his x wife, Ms. Sellers, amended her taxes therefor money forward by BOSE to my husband, the custodial parent, actually belonged to Ms. Sellers 2nd husband (who had custoday of thier children) My husband was also told, as a result, the state had to reimbure Mr Sellers the tax intercept monies. Keep this in mind. Ms Sellers was always in arrears of a 25.00 per week child support order. Twelve years later those children are now 29 and 26 year old adults, Ms Sellers still carries an arrears balance, and to top it off, the state of Maryland is saying my Husband has to pay back money that was owed to him. We feel if anyone owes the money, Ms Sellers owes it. And finally, the manner in which this has been handled adds insult to injury. To make threat of destroying the good credit we have worked 25 years to establish. How is this fair?
