Your Question:

i purchased a house my daughter is on title but not on mortgage can she claim the interest she pays the mortgage and taxes

Response: Unfortunately, no she cannot claim the mortgage interest even she is the one making the payments because she is not the borrower--her name is ***** ***** the mortgage.

I am sorry that I do not have better news for you.

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.
