Question posted in the Divorce Law category relating to North West
Hi..My parents are divorced and they were married in community of property.When my dad left he didn't take anything from the house including furniture,his clothes and the car.My mother sold the car that was still in my dad's name even though it backfired since she did this without my dad's consent my dad my surprised to get letters from the high court about a matter he was not aware of the matter came to rest when the buyer passed away and the case never really continued..She recently got married to another man and left the house and rented it out and took the money as extra income since she is working and the recent husband is not.My dad has 3 children with her I'm the oldest and she refuses to split the rent money amongst us(my siblings and I).My dad wants to change ownership of the house from his name as the house is still in his name to mine as I'm the oldest so I can rent out the house to support my siblings and I.Is my mother still entitled to the house since she got divorced and got married again to another man.Does she have any chance in court with this matter against her kids?
