Guess I wanna know what our options are. She isn't going to send her mom to prison. Is there any other way to get the debt erased some or taken off altogether?
This is serious. Unless there's any lawyers or financial experts here, you should seek a local firm for a free consultation on this.
So far, the only logical answer as a non-professional is to return the things she bought to at least pay back some of debt and pay the rest out of pocket. I think the only way you can get debt cleared is if the person who used your name is obviously not related to you in any way. The creditors want their money, and they'd expect family to help pay too.
The bad thing is she used one almost solely to get cash advances from a cash store and was late with all little payments. Plus her house is getting forclosed on since she's terrible with money. She's constantly borrowing from people. The kicker is she is a stay at home wife. She just spends money like crazy. The father was pulling in over 100k a year before he retired. But he's a retard and ignores everything.
Damn, that's a tough pickle man. You matter the most in your life. Your fiancé is likely cool as hell, but if your fiancé's family won't come clean with the debt and the fucking up of her credit score, you risk messing up your Credit score and money. Again, try to look for a free consultation to see what the professionals say.
But honestly, after being red-pilled last year, Fuck marriage. I'd go for civil unions at most
I can understand her view. Though with all due respect, her mom is a psycho cunt. Try to let her see. By 'helping' her mom. You know it will fail, she won't. Then at least you've tried. Normally, just cut people like that the fuck out.
If it's not the girlfriends... it's their moms.
We confronted her about it. Her childish response was that family's help each other out and that she was her mother so it's ok.
I always tell her she's too nice for her own good and that's why her family takes advantage of her.
As for marriage we've already been together almost 10 years. Gotta get that tax break!
Sorry we can't help more. It might be worth seeing a lawyer about this anyway if you can afford it, otherwise see if there are free legal advice sessions where you live where you could get an expert legal opinion on the situation
Yeah I've Googled about this and it's a pretty common thing. I get the sense it's either send her to jail or eat the debt. Thanks for the responses though. Feels good to get off my chest and into the open
