I am not sure this is strictly a family law
question but it has to do with a divorce settlement that my husband has with his ex. They owned a number of real estate properties which were split up between them and quit claimed to whomever took that property.
The former family home was quit claimed to his ex wife. She also receives monthly alimony
They agreed that my husband could deduct the monthly mortgage payment from her
monthly check. The loan is in his name only. She is an irresponsible alcoholic and when he let her make the payments in the past, she would not do so and it began to damage his
credit. My concern is that should she drink herself to death before the mortgage is paid off that his children would inherit the home but he would be stuck with the payment even when his alimony obligations end ( in the event of her death).In other words, he could not sell the home to get the loan paid off because he no longer owns it. His older daughter lives with his ex and is seemingly following in her mother
's footsteps and will probably not
go back to work or help pay for anything. So if she dies, he not only is stuck with the
mortgage payment, he cannot evict an adult child who would expect to live there rent free.
What options does he have to protect himself? Should he require she sell the family home within a certain amount of time or ???
