Divorced Hubby: My Deadbeat Former Wife Is Stiffing Bank Out Of House Payments On Ex-Marital Home, Forcing Me To Cough Up Cash To Pay Loan & Protect My Credit
In Jefferson County, Texas, The Southeast Texas Record reports:
- A man claims he was forced to make payments on a $100,000 loan in order to protect his credit after his ex-wife failed to do so.
Noel Jaimes-Chavez filed a lawsuit July 8 in Jefferson County District Court against Elisavet Flores.
In his complaint, Jaimes-Chavez alleges he and Flores divorced in 2012. In the divorce proceedings, Flores was ordered to make payments on a $100,000 loan in Jaimes-Chavez’s name. The loan was the lien to the property awarded to Flores in the divorce, according to the complaint.
Flores, however, failed to make the required payments, the suit states. In order to avoid a bad credit score, Jaimes-Chavez made the monthly payments for Flores, the complaint says. However, he claims he should not be forced to make the payments.
In his complaint, Jaimes-Chavez seeks foreclosure on the property to satisfy his debt, damages, and costs, plus costs and other relief the court deems just.
