Legal Question

Asked on: 8/01/11, 8:02 pm


My husband and I have recently found out that his youngest brother and his soon to be exwife have committed what we perceive to be fraud. My husband's mother was coerced by these two individuals to sign over her home to them six years ago. The story we were told about this recently was that our mother was having financial difficulty and was told to sign over the property to them in order to avoid creditors who may seize the property away from her. The brother and the ex-wife all along knew the property was completely paid for. This transfer was done without the knowledge of other members of the family. We feel the reason this was really done now that they are separated and moving toward divorce was for their own financial gain as the property has been named by the sister-in-law as a bargaining chip in their separation agreement. My mother now has no home and we feel that this is criminal and could someone contact us concerning what we could do to pursue charges against them.

Thank you
