It is tax refund time, and for those of you in divorce proceedings, this becomes just one more thing to fight over. If there a joint tax return was filed, the refund likewise, will come in the form of a check made out to both the husband and the wife. In an ideal world, the refund proceeds should be split 50/50. However, it gets complicated, if during the divorce proceedings, one spouse has made payments on behalf of the other and the other now owes the payor monies.
The good news is the check will require two signatures. If you are not happy about the way the disbursement is going, you have the power not to sign the back of the check until a judge disposes of the issue.
