- I lost my job actually before the divorce was final
- I procrastinate like crazy, so it took over a year before I had the support adjusted
- Back support garners 10% interest
- It was a ridiculously large amount in the first place
I'm not totally sure what happens now. This lien didn't show up on the title report for the last refinance, so there's a whole load of shit that could happen between me, the lender, and the title company for the refinance.
If I can't get her to lift the lien, the place goes into foreclosure - which bounces back to the situation in the previous paragraph.
So I need to dig up the correct forms, dig up her phone number, and try to convince her to lift the lien for a fraction of its value. If I can do that, I'll just be, well, poor. Which beats a lot of the alternatives.
The fact that she's mentally ill, bears a large grudge, and negotiates from a take-no-prisoners point of view gives me the feeling this is not going to be a good week.
