    **SNIP** Normally, when you're behind on certain debts or obligations, like back taxes or federal student loan payments, you risk having your tax refund garnished. Under the CARES Act, you won't lose your stimulus payment for those same reasons -- but overdue child support is the one exception. If you're behind on child support, your relief check could be partially garnished or garnished in full, depending on the amount you owe. Here's even more bad news: If you file a joint tax return with your spouse, and your spouse is behind on child support, your entire stimulus payment could be...

The amounts he will pay for each of these were redacted in online court documents. **SNIP** Monday's agreement does not dismiss the contempt motions, according to court documents. They will be dismissed if Biden provides all the documents the court...

    Hunter Biden is defying a court order to disclose his financial information as part of a child support fight while renting a $3.8 million designer home in Hollywood Hills, Los Angeles, for $12,000 per month.

The house’s owner, Shane Khoh, revealed the arrangement to the Washington Examiner on Wednesday. Khoh, a real estate investor, said he had no prior relationship with Biden or Cohen before they moved into the home last summer. “I don’t know them at all. I put it...

    Hunter Biden is hoping to keep his financial situation under wraps as he responds to legal claims that he’s cheated an ex-stripper out of support and health care costs for their baby, a report said. Biden filed a request to seal all financial records in the paternity case in Arkansas this week, the Daily Mail reported. Biden’s lawyers argue that media organizations have been covering the case, and that the likelihood his personal financial records could “be used in an inappropriate or malicious manner for reasons that have absolutely nothing to do with these proceedings is exceedingly high and should...

    Far-left climate extremist Greta Thunberg had a meltdown while speaking at the United Nations on Monday about climate change, claiming that the state of the world is on the verge of collapse. The Washington Examiner noted that Thunberg "has stage-parents, literally. Her mother sang opera internationally until the teenager convinced her to quit due to greenhouse gas emissions from flying, and her father and grandfather both gained fame through acting and directing." Thunberg repeatedly condemned adults by dramatically saying, "how dare you!" as she warned of a future that she suggested may not even exist due to climate change. "My...

    Detective Mike Fisten retired from New York City's homicide division, figuring a South Florida retirement gig would be a tropical breeze but his first case involved an Epstein victim, the first of very many to follow: Both during his fake Florida jailing and during his probation, Epstein hired PI's to actively intimidate the girls he had been abusing. If the victim pulled up to a gas station, the hired guns would pull up right behind her, making no effort to conceal what they were doing. If she went to the grocery store, they would pull in next to them, hoping...
