Let me give a little background here.
We are about $9k behind in our house payments. This happened during a time that I was left in charge of the finances and was trying to deal with it all myself. He would come and demand I buy this, buy that, get him this, get him that and if I ever said we didn’t have the money for it, I would catch hell for that so to avoid major problems, I would either not pay the mortgage or would call and cancel the check. I was making every attempt to work things out via payment arrangements with the bank until the whole divorce thing came about and once he found out what was going on (he never bothered to look into what was being done with the finances), he threatened me because “we could lose the house and it would be my fault”. I thought all financial decisions made as a married couple (even though papers have been served, we are still living under the same roof and this all happened PRIOR to the papers being served. He has since had me removed from the mortgage account so I can’t even call to get any information regarding what’s happening, he won’t tell me what’s happening and he won’t give me the opportunity to try and make it right either.
In a conversation he had with my mother, he informed her that "his attorney has spoken with judges and has guaranteed that if he gets the back balance taken care of, he will be assured to keep the house and to have custody of our two daughters. As stated in previous notes, I have proof of bruises he’s left on my arms, videos and audios of arguements where he has told me to “shut the F*** up” and spoken to me horribly and I have kept a journal for the past 18 months or more regarding every awful thing he has done to me. I’m no perfect parent but I make sure the girls are taken care of, make sure they get to school, are taken care of after school, etc. I am the primary caregiver and have been since they were born.
My question is whether this is a possibility or not?? Can an attorney guarantee him custody and possession of the home if he takes care of the back balance of the mortgage? Can his attorney actually speak to judges regarding the case and get their input on it??
