In this game, $12K is pocket change. I think you know that.

Since you're paying the bills, you need to know specific details of each and every account in question. You don't want any more surprises.

Remember, you've made a good faith effort to clear her debts. Until she signs releases, I wouldn't pay anything further. Asking for releases is reasonable. Throwing money into a black hole is anything but reasonable.

For starters: Write her an R-3 letter demanding that she sign releases for accounts in question. Make it short and to the point. Do not threaten. Your letter should be brief, informative, friendly, and firm (the BIFF rule). If push comes to shove, you need to be able show the Judge you made reasonable requests to resolve this matter.
