I have two promissory notes with my parents starting in 2004

Customer Question
for $120,000 each. I have...
I have two promissory notes with my parents starting in 2004 for $120,000 each. I have been paying interest only for 12 years at $1200 a month. i was supposed to inherit one of the loans upon my parents death(not my idea) my mom is still alive and doing fine. I have paid $170,000 so far and the total is not any smaller. My mom and I are trying to renegotiate the notes so that I dont owe so much(they are tied to a lein on the house). This is a really screwed deal for me which my ex husband and my now deceased father came up with as a way for my disabled rother to continue to get money after they die.(by paying $600 a month into a trust). We are looking for someone to fix all this shit so im not paying so much for 30 more years., without my mom getting tax penalties for forgiving some of the money while she is alive. Any ideas?

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.
