– from Christina O. in Summit, WI
When my mother and father got divorced, they both were found to have an equal share in the home. The court ordered them to sell the house. However, they were never given a time frame for the sale. My mother passed, before they found a suitable offer. My mother left her interest in the home to me, but my father is taking me to court saying that she did not have the right to leave the home to me. He is saying that he is now the sole owner. Is my mother’s share of their home mine, or his?
