Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer If you sold your house through a Realtor, lawyer, title company or other closing agent they should have given you a pro rata credit for the 2019 taxes you paid and an offsetting charge against the new owner's proceeds. Look at your closing statement.

Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer Unless you give us more information--for example, tell us WHY you ex wife is refusing to "give you any of your money"-there is very little anyone can do to help you online.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer Having been a commercial bank officer before going to law school, I would expect your bank to find their error sooner or later--and then correct it--without telling you. Therefore, unless you do not mind going OD when the bank suddenly debits your account, my practical advice is don't spend the extra money. Let it ride at least 30 days.

John B. Palley's answer Generally speaking only people who have not planned end up with a blocked account and without full IAEA authority. I typically see this done by pro pers and by lawyers who don't know what they are doing. There are other situations but that's a generalization by me.
IAEA means the Independent Administration of Estates Act. Without FULL IAEA authority you need to go back to court to confirm the sale of real estate. This is hugely problematic as you can lose buyers in the process. Full...
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer This sounds like some sort of an insider electronic hacking situation. If the amount of money is worth it, try hiring a lawyer to take up the job of fighting with the USAA bureaucracy instead of you having to do it. The first order of business would be to move all the money you still have at USAA to another unaffiliated bank that you can trust. Try to get a cashier's check, cash it out at another bank where you are well known, and then take the case to a third bank and open a new account. Best...

Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer There is a very common belief that there is a difference between an "authorized user" of a personal bank account and a "co-owner" of a personal bank account. While there are several different kinds of bank accounts, access to each type of bank account is either defined in the contract sometimes appearing on the back of an "account signature card" or on a longer written contract executed at the bank-- with a copy given to the person(s) signing the account contract.
Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer Whether you know it or not, you are avoiding the most important issue here by confusing it with a completely different unrelated issue that probably does not concern you.
First advice: If you owe any money to the bank and have not paid it back, the bank most likely sold the debt to a third party collection company. And it is not al all unusual for collection companies to lie to debtors and say they represent a bank, if they think it will get the debtor to pay up. In any event, your...
