My estranged husband & I filed jointly this year. Originally we had agreed to split the refund equally. Since then he has told me repeatedly that he refuses to pay child support to me until the judge orders him to (I just filed the papers last week, so we have yet to get anything in place legally). I am left with overdue bills due to his gambling addiction (not to mention a heater that needs to be replaced but was put on the back burner so he could gamble). I am to a point where I will not be splitting the refund equally. At the very least I will keep the portion which is mine (my income refund & the kids, since they will remain living with me). Do I have to give him his portion yet or do I have the right to keep it considering the history of gambling & the threats of not giving me anything toward the kids? Thank you for your help.
