Customer Question
I divorced my ex-husband...

I divorced my ex-husband June 15th, 2009. I was absolved of all marital debt. He couldn't get my name of the house because there is an IRS tax lien in his name only. My ex-husband passed away July 9, 2017. The next of kin is our Son. He is the exsecutuer to know if it

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

WV

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

According to my son yes.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I want to know, because my name is ***** ***** the house. Do I have the legal right to move in or no?

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.
