Help!!! This is going to be long Where do I begin??? 2 years ago, my husband and I found a house which needed extensive refurbishing, including doors and windows. Fortunately, the entire house is cement and brick and totally sound. I asked my mother to actually 'buy' the house and we would use our money that we had in savings to begin making the repairs. The house went into her name with the understanding that we were to pay her off (18,000.00) when we sold our other property. We sold the other property and paid her what our equity had been on that property leaving a few thousand dollars left owed. She then put the property into my name only by quit claim deed. Making a long story short, I was making 500.00 per month payments on what I owed her, which by the way, she would never tell me exactly what that amount was. Then, I found out my husband was having an affair and quickly put the house back into my mom's name so hubby couldn't touch it in divorce. Last week, my mom came to me and said they were taking a loan out on the house for 25,000.00. Five was what I had left owed to her and she said that she needed to get 'something' out of as well. And, that if I was not able to make the payments on the loan, that it would have to go into forclosure because she is old enough now that it doesn't matter whether her credit is hurt or not. She knows I'm in a contested divorce with my husband and that he is wanting to virtually get out of this marriage scott free...walk out on me, our two teenage daughters and the home we were working on together...without paying me any money. And she knows that when my girls turn 18, the only income I would have would be the very small amount of ssdi I'll be getting. Yet, then she comes and tells me basically that she'll have 20,000 in her hand and I'll be sitting on the curb. I was floored!!!! Well, I had recently paid her 5,000.00 which I'd just gotten from my ssdi lump payment. So when she told me what her plan was, I decided to stop payment on that check. Then she came over and told me she was having me arrested for giving her a 'bad' check, and put a lock on my garage which has a lot of my belongings still packed inside. Now she has been living on this property for the whole 2 years in her fifth wheel....free of charge (because I'd wanted her near in case anything happened to her, but not necessarily that close...she is very controlling, has to have everything her way, won't listen to anyone else's reasoning, and has made every decision about everything around here cause I didn't want to cause any problems and kept my mouth shut) Now that I've decided not to take her crap any more, she doesn't like it and is doing everything possible to 'show' she still has control of me and trying to make me do what she wants. I was very hurt at first, then angry, and now just numb. I'm trying so hard to stay calm as my blood pressure has begun to soar. I don't really know what I expect from posting this....I just needed to get it off my chest. But, I also feel so guilty. She has always made me feel guilty about everything!!!! The good news is: my husband is agreeing to stand by my side on this, especially since his attorney had told him that signing the house back to my mom was an illegal transaction because we were still married and because of that, the house was considered joint property, even though it was only in my name, therefore legally causing that transaction to be null and void...giving me full control of my house again. But, it will all have to go through the legal process...but in the meantime, my mom has contacted a realtor and is having it listed for sale. As soon as I find out which realtor, I'm contacting them myself and letting them know this property is in a legal dispute. I'd let the attorneys do that, but we all know how well they return our phone calls. Sorry this is so long, and yes, I do know the purpose of writing this to begin with. According to what I've described, does anyone have a clue where I'm going to stand in losing/saving my home????
