Thank you for your question. What were the terms of this alleged loan?
His parents had given us $1100 to pay off credit card consolidation companies. His dad stated that he wanted paid back. My ex was making payments to them in different increments. That was in 2005. Now that I'm divorcing their son, theyre demanding $12,500 from each
Well throughout the marriage, his mother would give my ex money and vice versa. We had an investment company of which I was a silent partner. Evidently, his mother gave him money to fix up the apartment. That amongst the other monies that she gave to him is why they're demanding more money
Can I be held accountable for paying anything if there was no promissory note and just their word against mine?
1. His parents are claiming $25, 000 total
2. They seem to be claiming drom 2005 to present even though my ex and I have been separated for 3 years already. I'm assuming it includes all monies given to my ex up to our separation
3. There was none
4. I don't know how much.total has been paid to his parents
5. There were no terms set and no promissory note
