Q: My ex wife and I have two children together if we live together and the separate again is she allowed back child support
My ex wife and I were divorced and then got back together and lived together ... This past week she gained access to my email accounts unknowly to me and found some emails she didn't like ... We have since split back up and she is demanding back child support ... All my pervious pay checks went into our joint checking account ... What is my "legal" ground on this ....
A: You should contact a competent divorce attorney right away. The outcome will depend on the specific language of your divorce decree, but certainly one could make the argument that your deposits into joint checking represented at least some, if not all, of your support obligation. Also, she may have violated the law by accessing your email, which you could use for leverage.
