Q: I own 49 percent of my family business. She came up with a ridiculous proposal for maintence and ownership of the house. Also child support which is not a problem. I am afraid she will get the IRS involved just to hurt me. Also my father is the owner. She is very hostile right now.
A: The IRS does not intervene in divorce cases (at least I’ve never heard of them doing so). If you owe a debt to them, they can collect – and if she reports suspected fraud, they may audit. Without more information, that’s about the best I can say. Call a Westchester Family Law attorney to schedule a consult for a full assessment.
