After the filing for the Quiet Title to clear the unknown

After the filing for the Quiet Title to clear the unknown heir (unknown paternity from 1951, both mother & child now deceased), how long is the waiting period in Texas (assuming no heirs come forward) until the title is cleared? Is there some probationary period thereafter where other legal filings (such as Judicial Declaration of Heirship) should be delayed? We have learned that mineral rights may also be involved with this missing heir and that the royalty payers will require a Judicial Declaration of Heirship be sent to them. If all of the land in the estate (tenants in common) has been deeded out to the known heirs and the titles quieted on most of the properties, could this Judicial Declaration of Heirship have any effect on the property or deeds?

I have a few more questions. What is a partition suit and

I have a few more questions. What is a partition suit and where do I do it. Should it be done before the house is sold so she is aware of her percentage if any.?? The bank notified me today that if I have a lawyer write a letter stating that she has had nothing to do with the house since 2008, when she moved out of state. She will have to sign anything further for me to get a hardship, as I have been out of work and on short term disability since April with 4 breaks in my foot. Can you do it or can you recommend someone in the Braintree, Ma area who could do it?/ She had assured me that she let the bank know back in May that I was out on disability. According to the bank representative, they have heard nothing from her in 8 years. I hope you can help.

I just received notice of legal action being taken against

I just received notice of legal action being taken against me (and my three brothers) for unpaid municipal taxes on a house we inherited when my father passed away. On the surface this sounds easy to resolve, that is, pay the taxes. Unfortunately, two of my brothers are financially stressed (i.e., one unemployed and the other in the middle of personal bankruptcy). Since my financial interest in the property is only 1/4, I have no desired to be responsible for any more that 1/4 of this lien debt. Given the complexities due to multiple owners and their financial stability (or lack thereof), I am seeking guidance as to how I should proceed on this matter.

I bought a house with my husband in CA and his parents

I bought a house with my husband in CA and his parents helped us financially. They took loan and only their name are on loan. We all are on house title. His parents paid half of downpayment. We had verbal agreement that we will keep paying back to parents for downpayment and we pays mortgage every months.I and husband are getting divorce and there is TRO that also orders him to pay mortgage until hearing date.He has not paid any, so has his parents and their credit got damaged.They don't want to sell the house, offering buyout but they also going to sue me if I don't agree with buyout.My question is that is there any chance for parents to win for their damage? Legally do I have to pay mortgage and property tax even they are also on the title? On deed, its written parents are entitle only for 1% of interest.I think all their damage was caused by their son who did not follow court order.
