I have to buy the house now and sign the papers tomorrow. I have filed for divorce and the judge denied it because he said that I did not search for my wife enough and need to send certified mail to her last known address. So, I will be sending certified mail in the next few days.
My house is foreclosed and auctioned off ... because my wife had signed my name on a re-fi and other home equity loans on this and other property (in ca and nv) and many credit cards. Identity theft....DA contacted, police reports... My credit is shot and I am using the bank settlement for the fraudulent loan to buy a very less expensive house.
So it looks like I will buy it as "unmarried".
