Stimulus Payment:
***The CARES law passed on March 27, 2020 does not exempt economic impact payments from being intercepted for past due child support.  Please click on this link for the frequently asked questions and answers: Economic Impact Payments FAQ’s.  If you are receiving your economic impact payment jointly with your spouse and only your spouse owes the child support debt, you can file an injured spouse form with the IRS at https://www.irs.gov/forms-pubs/about-form-8379.  
Per the IRS Website FAQ’s :
(question/answer #21):  If you are married filing jointly and you filed an injured spouse claim with your 2019 tax return (or 2018 tax return if you haven’t filed your 2019 tax return), half of the total Payment will be sent to each spouse and your spouse’s Payment will be offset only for past-due child support. There is no need to file another injured spouse claim for the Payment.

Thank you for your understanding and patience.
