Judith & Henry *** would put an offer on ***, My Question
My husband owned our present house before we married so it is in his name only. I am happy with this!
We keep our finances separate; and share life’s expenses in a ratio that works well for us.
As we both have monies left from our first marriages, we each want to leave our own money and property to our respective children. Our wills have these caveats written in them.
My husband has willed what ever house we own, at his death, to his Nephew Allen ***.
My concern is as I must sign the loan and mortgage; should my husband die before me (Judith) would I be responsible the disposition of the house.?
I don’t want to be in any way responsible. I will just want to go my own way.
Judith ***

Ma'am, I want to make sure I understand the question

You are planning to take out a mortgage on his property (in his name alone)?

And you are signing for the loan?

Is that correct?

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
