    I am one of the women whom has the right to file injured spouse and i beleive it is a good law. My husbands ex shouldn’t get what i work for through the year when i dont have responsibilities to the child. (as far as paying child support goes) There are some women that don’t find out about the injured spouse form until later so i beleive that they need that time!
