Cathy’s mother, Debra, had suspiciously gone missing when Cathy was 10 years old and 15 years later, detectives were still unable to close the case. Cathy and her grandmother continued to live in Debra's home and kept current with the mortgage.
Now, with a husband & newborn, she wants to sell the property and start fresh. Unfortunately, with Debra presumed alive and the house still titled under her name, neither Cathy nor her grandmother had actual rights to the property. They couldn't do anything until the records were updated.
We worked with various city & county departments and touched upon several bodies of law to achieve Cathy's goals.
With our help, Cathy inherited the property and closed a challenging chapter of her life to start anew in months, rather than years.
