Customer Question
Bob and I were...

Bob and I were together for 29 years. While we were together Bob bought a trailer house on 2 lots in Venus Texas. He gave 6,000.00 for this property. Bob has passed away . He has 2 sons by a previous marriage. My question is do I owe his sons anything for these 2 lots. The trailer has been hauled away.

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far? Have you prepared or filed any paperwork?

I have tried several times to meet with them at a lawyers but they never show up.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a TX lawyer about this?

Several times but nothing gets done.

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

Not that I can think of.

Lawyer: Olivia Kent, Attorney replied 3 months ago

what do you mean by "do I owe his sons anything for these 2 lots"? They'd be entitled to the lots if they are the next of kin - if you don't own the lots

Bob and I were common law
Lawyer: Olivia Kent, Attorney replied 3 months ago

Okay, so that means that the two of you held yourselves out as husband and wife to your family/friends/community?

We lived as husband and wife I use his last name

So if his sons contest your ownership of the lot you would need to establish your status. Attached is information on proving your status as a common law spouse.

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.
