I am concerned my Brother will lose his half of the 3 lots. Will this happen? If I don't list these since they are in My Mothers name will they find them?
My attorney told me to say the property belongs to my brother or if I decided to tell the trustee we could cut a deal with him (money) & I can keep the property. Your thoughts? I am to say the least confused.
I so appreciate your honesty. If the trustee works out a deal to purchase his interest, will the creditors still take the remainder of my half?
