I am buying my ex-wife out of the house we currently own together to an amount we agreed upon. Our divorce papers state that it is our intent to sell the house, but have since agreed that I would buy her part out verbally for that amount. The papers state that she is to pay a loan off for an air conditioner we bought for the house. I have paid the loan off. Once the loan goes through, would Ibe able to recover the money I used to pay the loan off?
There are legal documents that need to be enacted to protect your investment and enforce the vernal modification. You should contact an attorney such as myself who can assist you.
Every verbal agreement must be reduced to a written document. You need to consult an attorney immediately.
I would need more details about the facts, but it seems, yes, you should be entitled to recover the balance of the loan you paid (that she was required to pay).
