What we would like to know is if my brother can get an attorney involved who would help him get his chance at taking back the house, perhaps getting a re-fi and moving back in. All through their marriage he made the house payments and bought groceries. She was very financially irresponsible and even opened credit cards in his name (this was while they were still married), maxed them out and basically trashed his credit. So we would like to know what his options are with regards ***** ***** house.
Response 1: Yes. Your brother should do so to ensure that the house is not taken over by the lender. Also, since she has not complied with the agreement.
I have one other question. So his ex gets remarried and she moves to her new husband’s house, in Parma, Ohio and takes their younger 10 year old son with her. She has an older son born out wedlock, who is now in his 20s. He was an infant when my brother married her. He lives in the basement at the new husband’s house. The 10 year old son, my nephew, is home alone most of the time now. Is leaving a child at that age home alone legal?
Response 2: No, it is not legal. She should be reported to CPS. In the alternative, your brother can speak with his ex-wife about relinquishing custody to him. If they agree, then they should file joint petition for modification of custody and child support to give him formal custody of the child and to terminate his child support obligation.
Kindly give a positive rating to my response so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for doing this.
Thank you for your cooperation.
