    My husband and I don’t make enough income to file taxes, so I submitted our information into the nonfillers irs website it was excepted and we even got a dad date but that date has come and gone, well I found out last night after calling the irs toll free number that the whole $2,400 stimulus check was taken and given to my husbands ex wife, now don’t get me wrong I believe a man should help with expenses for their child but their son does not live with either parent and has not lived with either on a regular basis in years, he’s about to turn 18 in September, but his mother allowed him to quit school back when he was like 14/15 claiming they were going to home school him, which I believe he may have started but didn’t last long, he actually has had at least two “adult type” 40 hour a week jobs in the last few years , both his mother and my husband his father have contributed to some of his expenses during these times and he has lived with both parents on and off but not for very long periods of time so my question is can I do anything about her receiving our $2400 stimulus check when both parents have pretty much contributed equally for him?

    If the money has already been issued there isn't any recourse I am aware of. It unfortunately won't matter if your husband has contributed to his son's expenses overall, even if it turned out to be fairly equal all things considered, because all the IRS is considering is back child support balances.

    So if your husband owed back child support, that's one of the only debts the stimulus can get held up from, and they have stated that more often than not its supposed to be collected and redirected to the guardian of the child where the back child support is owed.

    You I don't owe any child support and I am getting told that I m not getting a stimulus check due to child support I am living on $784 a month And I keep seeing people get these checks and not really need it. I sit here and do without I can't get no damn help from the government i Fractured my back in 2 places and Fractured my Neck in 2007 now if this would have happened to me I would still be doing what I was born to do and I was a damn good boat captain. So now I got robbed of my capabilities to support my family and I have been praying every damn day that I am laying here I catch the Damn Corona virus so i can leave this place In this shell they call a body When you can do nothing all day and you can't move and you have to have someone wipe your backside

    They said that they deposited my stimulas payment into my bank april 29th well a week later i get a letter stating the irs had taken the whole thing for back child support when they even said that if you owe child support they'd only be allowed to take a portion but NOT the whole thing. Well thats all a lie when they did. I have 4 children 2 are disabled dealing with alot of drama with county and schools. I haven't seen my 2 girls since they were toddlers due to my youngest one's father and his LIES and he refuses to allow me to see them heck my oldest ain't even HIS and he gets all MY MONEY. What am i supposed to do how am i supposed to help my other 4 children when they take everything for child support when it shouldn't have ever happened. My BF owes over 2 grand in child support and they gave him all his $2700 didn't take a dime out for child support. Hows that even fair its not even right.. I sure hope they give us atleast half of our stimulas back they took from everyone just cause of back child support as it's not fair to leave people broke they have bills and lives too besides paying ur ex to raise children who didn't ask to be in this world to pay ur bills like ur rent or mortgage or electric phone cable ETC.. Anyways i hope they make it right and give us at least half the stimulas pay back

    My Significant Other was told by IRS through portal that he could expect his stimulus on April 29 but he still haven’t received anything. How can we find out what happened to it cause the bank hasn’t received it. It’s So frustrating cause there isn’t anybody to answer questions for us at the IRS, the people we really need to talk
