What is the name of your state? maryland (ohio state taxes)
my husband and his former spouse owe back taxes in the state of ohio. This bill is now in collections and she won't agree to pay half even though it is in both of their names (ex: frank and ann jones). I told my husband that we would pay the entire amount but she should be responsible for her half (she can pay us back). Her words to us and the collection agency is that she aint paying a dime. So of course the collection agency said that if they have to sue they will sue them both seperately for the full amount (garnishment)
The divorce decree does not list anything besides child support and health insurance (done pro se) and the ex wife filed bankruptcy some years ago but did not include this.
My question. If we pay the full bill and she does not pay her share, can we sue her in small claims court for her half?
