Years ago I with family sold some acreage in Missouri. My

Years ago I with family sold some acreage in Missouri. My portion was $33,000. I had my son put it in his account and we bought a house together, using $20,000 down payment. Years later I became disabled and was concerned of losing my Equity. At the same time, my son was needing money to finish his college degree so he refinanced the loan, adding $10,000 to the loan and removing my name from the property. The arrangement was that he pay the house payment and I pay all the utilities, etc. Again, years later he meets and marries a woman and problems began. They moved out and I continue to make the house payment and all expenses. Now though I am told that if something happens to him, the house would go into probate and probably to his wife and a new loan taken out to pay off the old. She of course would not to this.

I purchased a piece of property from a person that had

I purchased a piece of property from a person that had previously purchased the property from the county tax agency. There is an issue with the property, part of the land appears on two deeds. The county refuses to correct the situation. I've been told that I will need to file a quiet title action. Is there a way that I can recuperate the expenses of filling this action? And are there action(s) that I can take against the county for selling the property without correcting the situation.
