Default Does State of California or IRS come after the wife for restitution owed?

hello all,
my question is , does the state of California or IRS come after the wife for restitution owed against thier incarcerated husband?
can the victim sue my estate to pay his restitution (owed directly to the victim)or attach my wages?
I appreciate any experience any of you may have with this situation!

Okay, you really need to speak to a CA attorney about this due to the community property statutes that apply to marital assets.

Can they come after your individual wages? Generally no.

Can you be sued? Dunno. Depends on a lot of factors. Can his estate be sued? You bet. Can his estate effect your estate? You bet. Can they go after any and all co-mingled funds? Yep.

You really need to talk with an attorney, bringing along all tax documents, bank accounts, retirement accounts, a list of assets when you settle on an attorney to help you.
