Hello, my question is.....My...

Hello, my question is.....My mom is 79 yrs old, my brother had her put land in her name to avoid paying taxes, she lives with me and he does absolutely NOTHING to help out. Me and the rest have to pay taxes, so should he, at first he said he was gonna switch it after his divorce so the wife couldn't get none of it, NOW I think he's trying to said until he gets 65, he's 59 now. Is there ,way to make him pay those taxes?

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

Texas

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

No he keeps everything a secret, he only comes here to let her sign papers, that they don't discuss.

Hello, different expert here...

.

So brother owned land and put it in mother's name to use her exemption so it wouldn't be subject to property taxes?

.

What is mother's opinion on the matter here?

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.

TonyApopka, FL

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.
