I know when my ex husband used his inheritance money for a down payment on real estate that we both owned, He received his fulll reimbursement, and then we split the property 50/50, per California Law. Is this law still valid? My new husband and I are divorcing and the down payment came from inheritance. All the money put into the house came from monies I had prior to our marriage, will I receive my money first, before the 50/50 split?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: CaliforniaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: noJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Nothing I can think of bought some timeshare points with inheritance money, and some THomas Kinkaide art pieces these two were about $25000 and the down payment on the house was $244,000

I own a deeded timeshare in Kauai at the Point in Poipu. We

I own a deeded timeshare in Kauai at the Point in Poipu. We bought the timeshare outright over 10 years ago, but have continued to pay the annual maintenance fee. 2 years ago our timeshare also added an assessment for repairs over a three yr period. This year due to some financial hardships we did not pay our annual fee/ assessment on time. We never received any notices until last week. We just received a "Notice of default an intent to foreclose buy power of sale under association lien."The auction is set for 8/25/16.We are now in a position to pay our maintenance fees as well as the assessments however diamond resorts has tacked on an additional $2000+ for 6 months in late fees and legal fees.These additional fees are impossible for us to pay now. Is there a way to pay our bill not including the fees and retain our ownership?

Looking for an attorney experienced with selling timeshares.

Looking for an attorney experienced with selling timeshares. Ebay shows a few completed sales at $1 for similar units. Annual fee is $900+. Have questions about the best way to selland things to look out for. Also, after the sale, is the former owner obligated in any way if a subsequent owner does not pay the annual fees. Thanks.

We purchased a timeshare in CA back in 1983, which we paid

We purchased a timeshare in CA back in 1983, which we paid in full already. In 2012 we filed for C7 and the timeshare was dismissed. We thought that was the end of it but now we have received a Notice of Delinquent Assessment and Claim of Lien asking us to pay $4,798 plus $425 for foreclosure fees.We had our home here in TN foreclosed upon three years after our C7, and have had to wait until 2017 to purchase another home. Will this timeshare foreclosure add time to this waiting period and injure our credit which we have worked hard to build? Is there anything we can do? We currently live in TN and the timeshare is in CA.

I tried to cancel my timeshare (California) on the last day

I tried to cancel my timeshare (California) on the last day (Saturday) of a 7 day cooling off period.We signed the documents on a Saturday but didn't realize we'd made a mistake until the following Saturday. Unfortunately the post office was closed so even though I sent the letter on Saturday, the postmark is for Monday. They of course denied my cancelation saying it was outside the window. From the National Notary web site I found a explanation that "[if for example] a rescission notice is mailed on Saturday evening...the loan is considered canceled even thought the notice will not be postmarked until Monday."My question is, 1) Do I have a case? 2) Is this sufficient to make a case to get my timeshare cancelled and 3) Is there more formal law language somewhere to make my case?
