What to do about claiming property from a liar who misappropriated ny money?
Question Details: When my former daughter-in-law wanted to buy property in Hawaii, I loaned her the money, gave her power of attorney to buy in my name so she and the children and my son, who was deployed at the time, would have a place to live. She was to keep up the mortgage payments but she instead bought in her name. The power of attorney was filed in both there and here. I was not aware until she filed for divorce that she misused the money and lied about the property purchase. The amount was $10,000. What can I do about claiming the property or forcing her to sell it?
If your former daugher-in-law misused a power of attorney that you gave her resulting in your damages with respect to real property she purchased in her name in Hawaii, you should consult with a real estate attorney with respect to how you should proceed in getting back the $10,000 provided her.
Possibly a demand letter might result in repayment of the money provided the former daughter-in-law and if that does not get the result you want, a lawsuit might be your recourse against her.
