How to Handle Your COVID-19 Relief Payments
If you are a divorced parent, you may have questions about how to handle your COVID-19 relief payments. Watch this video for important information.
How do I handle the COVID-19 relief payments if I am divorced?
COVID-19 has caused the government to pass many relief actions. One of these is that each person will receive $1200 in the near future, and children will receive $500 in the near future. Obviously, there’s restraints and requirements on income for that. What I want to talk to you about right now is this. A lot of times, when you file your tax returns, you’ve got electronic deposits from your refunds into one of the parents’ accounts. More often than not, it’s the father’s account. These incomes of $1,200 each are going to be coming in soon, and also the money for the children. You’re going to be contacted by your lawyers very quickly.
The judge in Payne County believes that it’s in the best interest of the children of all parties that when the check comes in, the other party gives the other spouse their $1,200 check immediately. That $1,200 that you receive for the other spouse is not yours; it’s theirs. We want you to do the right thing. We want you to contact the Murray Law Firm and talk to us about it. Hopefully, you’ll be receiving an order in the next few days, signed by a judge, that directs all parents to split the money. If you have custody of the children, that $500 goes to you for each child. If you have shared parenting, it’ll be divided between you both.
Remember, we’re in this together. Now is not the time to be greedy or selfish. You need to do what’s right. The right thing to do is that each parent gets their $1,200. Call Murray Law Firm today, and we’ll assist you with this.
