    I've decided that I want to go to Hawaii. Because it's paradise.

    JohnnyK, your post makes me nervous! You'll see paradise, just not in Hawaii, and not for a looooooooooong time!

    I think Cootie lived in Hawaii, so I bet she could tell you a lot about it. I'd love to get an opportunity to go someday, too.

    ?

    That's not what I meant. Not this time.

    I don't know. I'm having a bit of a weird night.

    It's not every day I decide to listen to relaxing music and act all spiritual with strange aspirations.

    Okay, good, just checkin'. You're entitled. We accidentally bumped into the dial on an old radio we have in our barn a short while ago, and it went to a spiritual station. We kept it there for over a week, not even sure why, but it just felt like the right thing to do.

    PS But don't say "Not this time." There'll never be a time. That's not an option. We all love you.

    Here's a good one! I get a letter, along with a check, from an attorney's office concerning a pension settlement dispute my former husband's union fought and won, and they apparently think I should send them a fee for sending me this money, which was a part of my child support settlement that came out of his paycheck every month. They admit that while they do not represent ME, they do represent HIM, and they say that HE has agreed to a 20% fee (of the gross). They seem to believe that I owe them something, and would be "appreciative" if I'd send them a check for their 20% of the money that they've sent me!!!

    Since their agreement is with HIM and not ME, I'd be appreciative if they'd send me some of whatever they have been smoking!!!

    Boy, I'd love to see Judge Judy straighten them out. I can see it now: They are the plaintiffs, suing for the 20%; you are the defendant. Judge Judy says, "Where is your contract with prhoshay? Oh, you don't have one? What are you . . . nuts? Judgment for the defendant."

    This reminds me of things that have happened to former spouses of various types of deadbeats. The IRS and various debtors have claimed that the former spouse is responsible for debts/money owed because of non-payment by the former spouse. It has held up in court.

    I hope that they sent you that letter thinking it was worth a try and they could intimidate you into paying something. If he negotiated that before your marriage was dissolved ... they may think they have a case. I'd be worried about things like liens, account freezes, etc.

    I just want to suggest that since that letter is from attorneys ... you contact one of your own just for your own financial safety.

    If he signed an agreement for 20% of the gross, seems logical to me that HE should pay them if they want more. What you got was a portion of the gross - gross being defined as the initial amount before any deductions. You (as a representative of your kids) are a "deduction." I'd either ignore them, or refer them back to the person who signed a contract with them for the gross. Their contract is with him, not you.

    That makes sense too (you always do) BUT ... I am wondering if former hubby only paid 20% of his portion of the gross ... therefore there is still a debt owed.

    What I am thinking is this was indeed a contract arrangement during the marriage, the former spouse could be held responsible for any "bad debt".
    Since it is part of a Child Support settlement ... I think your States Attorney's office might give you some pro-bono advice.


    I'm not a lawyer either, but I watch them on TV.
