Q: My 1st stimulus check was taken for back child support owed to my x who killed their self 2 years ago and child is 18
Where is the$1200.00 and how do I find out about it?
A: The check was given to the person to whom you owe arrears, as will all future checks from the federal government until child support arrears are paid in full. You cannot hide from the debt. It will follow you until into social security, at a time when you may not be able work and long after the child is emancipated.
