Two Rivers, WI

Foreclosure decision made on Tippy's Bar and Grill

I left Manitowoc in 1984. I then lived and worked all across North America. I travelled around the world. Three years ago I moved back and now live in Two Rivers. It is safe. It is cheap. I am a 45-90 minute drive away from big city "culture. ". I own a beautiful house that cost 1/10th of what it would have cost in the other places I lived. And I have news for you: there are "loosers " everywhere. There are people sitting on barstools right now from NYC to London to Paris to Moscow to Bejing complaining about the same things day after day. The fact that you think this is unique to Manitowoc or Two Rivers really only shows how little you have seen of the world and how little you know about life and human beings.  (Aug 20, 2013 | post #16)

He is only 3 months behind. No payment in March or April and May is 2 weeks late. Her mortgage broker told her that if she gets him current and makes sure the payments are on time, her credit score will rebound fairly quickly. However, if the loan defaults, she is screwed for 7 years after the foreclosure which will take at least 18 months to go through the system.  (May 19, 2012 | post #67275)

That was my advice. Get a lawyer to fight for the house. And in the mean time, pay his mortgage to save your credit. If nothing else, I do know that she can make his payments and sue him in small claims court for the amount she pays.  (May 19, 2012 | post #67272)

Well, I haven't been on here in a VERY long time. Doesn't seem to look any different. I was recently asked a question by someone, and I thought I would throw it out to see if anyone had any thoughts. Her question: "We were divorced in September of 2011. Decree awarded him the house and 100% of the financial responsibilities for the house. As I was on the mortgage with him, he agreed to refinance in his name only. His bank called me in to sign papers for the refinance, and I signed them. The bank said it was approved and all done. Yesterday, I went to get a mortgage to buy a new home for myself, and I was told 1) He never refinanced. I am still on his loan. He didn't like the new terms of the refinance, refused to sign and never informed me. 2) He hasn't made a payment in three months and because of this, my credit score has dropped significantly. 3) I am now unable to get approved for a mortgage to buy my own home. Can I go to court and sue him to take the house? He can not and will not pay for it. He can not or will not refinance and remove my name from the mortgage. If I have to pay for the house, should I not be able to have him evicted in order to allow me to live there? Or, do I just have to make his payments so that he can live for free while I have to live in a tiny apartment? " Any thoughts?  (May 19, 2012 | post #67270)

You were right. The weather on that drive home was terrible. Took 5 hours to drive the 180 miles. Wow, I haven't been on here for a LONG time.  (May 19, 2012 | post #67267)

Can you sue to take house from ex-husband if he is defaul...

This is a question I was asked by someone else, and I thought I would throw it out here and see what could be learned: "We were divorced in September of 2011.

Coulter's Cackling: A Political Debate

makes me have to do this again: Of course it is all part of Obama’s plan to replace our Christian government with an atheist, communist Islamic state! He will lead us to the End of Days. It is written and it shall pass. If the liberals do not repent they shall taste the fear that only God’s own fire can bring. They will burn as the smell of Hell’s own sulfur pits chokes their last breaths. Hindu, Muslim, Catholic, Atheist and Democrat – you will all be judged and found lacking. You must RISE up against this so-called president. It is your only hope. I say “so-called” because, Barack Obama is NOT the president. I repeat Barack Obama is NOT the president. He did not recite the oath of office correctly, then he did not use a bible – probably had a Koran in his jacket pocket close to his heart. NO FILM of his second oath either. WHO KNOWS what he really swore to do. HE MIGHT have sworn allegiance to LENIN, SATAN, ALLAH or the NAACP Quick, Anne Coulter, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh GET ON THIS STORY IMMEDIATELY. It is obviously a conspiracy to subvert the American way of life and the will of Jesus. He cannot prove that he is an American citizen by birth. He is secretly a Muslim and took the oath today with his hand on the Koran. The oath was not properly administered - HE WAS NOT SWORN IN AS PRESIDENT!!!! Without the oath properly administered this is an unconstitutional cabal controlling our government. WE MUST RISE UP AGAINST THE GODLESS HORDES. THIS WAS A COUP And the Birth Certificate scandal IS real. It is all part of the same Ultra-liberal constitutional coup. Obama was not eligible to become president and he was not administered the proper oath. So, THERE IS NO PRESIDENT. There is a shadowy behind the scenes ultra-liberal paramilitary group of gays and abortionists who have taken control of the nuclear codes. They will not rest until the American way of life as shown on Leave it to Beaver has been destroyed and only viewed fondly as decades old fiction. This IS happening and it IS foretold in the Book of Revelation (only if you know the secret codes and meanings) BUT IT IS REAL.  (Nov 29, 2010 | post #3414)
