 If you file injured spouse (or whatever it's called) they will only take his portion. Otherwise, they will take it all. Every single dime.

 Injured spouse??   So she would be considered a injured spouse if : part of her income / tax return were to be used to pay back his past due support?   Does that mean she would still recieve her portion of her taxes while his would still have to go too the past due child support? Ive never heard of this before. Not trying to be rude or insulting. Just trying to get a better understanding.

Quoting Ms.Pink.:

Not true. She can file injured spouse.

You may be an injured spouse if you file a joint tax return and all or part of your portion of a refund was, or is expected to be, applied to your spouse’s legally enforceable past due financial obligations.


Quoting cmendoza316:

 No, you can not block them from taking it and if he owes back child support, you might as well kiss your tax return bye bye, and they will coutinue to take it until ALL past child support is paid. Id start asking myself why be with a man that doesnt support his children.

All of it. If you worked you can file what is called an injured spouse document and they will only take his part. If you didn't work, the state can take all of it. This is, if a failure to pay child-support has been filed with the court, and if he pays through the state's child support agency, it has.

They will take all of it until he is caught up.  You cant block them from taking it but you can file an injured spouse form to get your portion back (assuming you worked and turned in W-2's on your joint return).

 Me too. :/

Quoting Mariah-1987:

They will take it all. I can't believe you are worried about blocking it. I'd be worried about the fact that my oldman owes $12,000 in child support to his kid!

Yes, she would still get her portion. The other portion will go to the child support.

 Yup, that's exactly how it works. If she worked she will get her portion but they will most definitely take his!
