If my ex and his girlfriend are selling their home and he owes back child support so he wants me to sign an affidavit to close, can they make me?
Question Details: My ex-husband and his current girlfriend are trying to get me to sign something regarding his back child support so that they can close on the sale of their home. I don't want to be involved in anything they are doing and feel I should be left out of it and don't want to sign anything. She is now threatening to take me to court and have me pay her legal fees to force me to sign. I don't feel any of this is my problem. What should I do?
You have NO legal obligation to file any affidavit for them: the law does not require you help them out by swearing or attesting to something (and that's what an affidavit is, essentially: swearing in writing to certain facts). They have no grounds to sue you for an affidavit, since you have no duty to provide one.
