The options depend on the context...are the judgements valid?
ThanksCan you tell me:
1. The properties were hers prior to your marriage?
2. There has never been a mortgage on either property from the marriage?
Then they are community property.
Regardless of how you may have decided to title the properties, since they were purchased during the marriage??They are community property. You have an equal ownership in them. If you were to divorce? You would get half the equity.
Because of this, the creditors can impose a lien
This is the part of my job I don't like...when the law is not in favor of my customer. I wish I could tell you that because they are not in your name you have no ownership interest, but I can only provide you information based on the law so that you can act on the best available information to you...I wish I had better news, but can only hope you recognize and understand my predicament and don't shoot the messenger. I'm sorry!Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
