Hello. I will try to assist you today. Did you have any type of agreement with your mother-in-law when you agreed to build the camp? Did you agree to do as a gift to her? If not, your best claim is a claim to recover damages for unjust enrichment. In other words, she owes for the value that you provided in labor and materials for building the camp on her property.

Hope that helps. Please remember to accept and rate this question. A positive rating would be greatly appreciated.

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.
