My question involves a marriage in the state of:WV
Hello all, my spouse is asking for a divorce, a shock to me but i suppose it happens, in the course of digging to see how bad I've been left financially I discovered my spouse has been drawing UI unemployment since it began despite their returning to work in late may. They've earned apox 5000$ with their job and collected apox 5700$ from state unemployment. I have bank statements proving this.
Question is...how good of an ace in the hole is this information to me? I would think reporting them would only leave me liable for their debts as we will have to file jointly but separated this following year. I doubt they'll come lock them up for this. I just see the irs withholding any returns until the debt is paid. Which agian would fall back on me as I was the primary earner in our marriage and am the the one most likely to have steady taxable income.
Your thought are appreciated
