In Massachuesttes, I have been divorced since 2014 and my ex wife is still living the my house, it is soley in my name and the deed is only in my name, I bought it in 1997 and we married in 2001. Our divorce
agreement did not specify a move out date, it just said that she and my kids were currently residing there. She refused to pay the mortgage so it went into forclosure but at the last minute I was able to get a modification and she agreed that if the modification was approved she would pay the mortgage and sign a tenant agreemen with me so she could stay in the hous, she made 2 payment and is now saying she is not paying anymore and will not sign the agreement that I have been asking her to sign. I need to move on with this and I don't want the forclosure on my credit when I just saved it from forclosure. How do I get her out?
JA: Because family law
varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: She waived her right to any and all past, present and future real and personal property
in the divorce agreement that wasn't specifically stated, the house was not a topic as she wanted nothing to do with it at the time
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: Yes, I filed eviction papers with the court but I am worried housing court is going to through it in probate court.
JA: What advice did they give you?
Customer: To move forward with the eviction. But now she is threatening
allimony so I can give it to her to pay the mortgage and wants the court to let her do this until my 6 year old son is emancipated.We have split joint legal and physical custody
of our kids
She is working full time and has a medical billing degree.
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: I jut want to know if she can sue me so that she can stay in the house until my son is emancipated and make me pay the mortgage? How am I suppose to live if she can really do somthing like that and how would I ever be able to buy another home? I can't live like this anymore.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
