“I live in California. I am wondering if there is a way to reduce arrears on welfare owed to the state by my ex wife.”
This is a rather complicated area of law that depends on the facts and circumstances surrounding the receipt of welfare funds. If there was a child involved, the matter becomes even more difficult depending on who had custody of the child or children. Your best bet would be to contact a qualified attorney in your area, who will be better able to review the facts of your case and advise you about your options.
