My mother consigned for a Sallie Mae loan for her granddaughter who has been making the payments. Once my mother passes away they automatically turned it over to a collection agency who is trying to make my father pay it off. Apparently this is wh...
Only your mother and whoever the other co-signer of the loan would be liable. The debt would be a liability of her estate, but only as to her probate estate - assets she held in her sole name. I assume most if not all she owned was jointly owned with your father, and as such, those are not probate assets. He should perhaps have a local attorney send them a letter explaining this.See question
Our divorce was final a year ago. During the hearing the judge ordered my ex to pay me 50% of his retirement. She didn't include that in the divorce degree. He just resigned from his position and requested his retirement and didn't tell me. They h...
You have to get back to court and have the judge amend her order. If not doing this with an attorney, ask the court personnel what the correct pleading is, but it may be just a motion to amend the judgment.See question
I just want to know if they can just say get out today
From the date of auction, it is usually 30 days for the new owner to close. Then the normal eviction process has to start, so maybe another 45-60 days. Eviction will not only lead to you losing possession, it may also lead to a money judgment against you if you do not pay use & occupancy charges during this time. If there is no bidder at the auction, and the bank takes the property, the eviction process can start sooner, since there won't be that initial 30 days to close with a new owner. Cash for keys would be the way to go, as it could help provide you funds to be able to move elsewhere.See question
WHAT would be the lowest amount they can sell it to family member ?
I agree with my colleague. Since the property has been foreclosed, any sale before the auction has to be done with the bank. The owner cannot act unilaterally. Pre-auction or at-auction, the minimum will likely be the amount due on the mortgage + the bank's costs to date.See question
My daughter's grandfather passed away 3 years ago and so did his son who predeceased the grandfather 5 years ago. Is my daughter entitled to any inheritance at the time of death he was still paying off his house. He had no will. Her Aunt is his on...
With no will, yes, your daughter inherits her father's 50% share. Aunt cannot do anything unilaterally. The estate needs to be probated to clear title. See an attorney. With ownership, comes obligation, so your daughter is obligated to pay her share of the mortgage as well, which can be dealt with either by you paying her share or if Aunt fronts all the payments, it can be accounted for when the property is sold.See question

Just go thru the court process. Absent agreement, the case will eventually be set for trial, and resolved then. Speak to the court about perhaps expediting a trial date.See question
My license is suspended but I was driving down the road, came upon 3 officers and they stopped me. Asked if I've saw a green Chevy truck with a man driving. I replied "no sir". He then asked me for my ID, insurance, registration... All was legal e...
There is no problem with this. I would also heed my esteemed colleague's advice that continuing to drive on a suspended license has great risks for you. Next time, it may be arrest.See question
My mother didn't pay West Virginia state property taxes for two years. She just lost the deed to her house. If I pay the taxes for her, is there any way possible for her to get the deed back? Thanks!
The state likely does not wish to hold onto the property. Call the agency that took the property and see if you can purchase it from it.See question
Father has signed the birth certificate , but has never provided financial help, or any help, but now wants to come back into the picture and see her whenever he wants now that I'm married and there is another man taking care of our daughter
Unless he has been adjudicated by the court as the father, he has no rights. He has to take initiative to go to court to do that. If he does that, you seek child support and seek restrictions on his parenting time. Any parenting time should be strictly scheduled, gradual and perhaps supervised. You can independently start the court case, if you want child support, but that is when he will ask for parenting time. Unless and until court happens, you can refuse him, but will not be entitled to child support.See question
