are you responisble for your ex inlaws after divorce
hi my parent's divorce has been finalised after 3years of proceedings. She got the house as she could prove that she paid for it alone and she is elderly. her ex husband's parents stay on the property. Neither her ex nor his siblings are prepared to take responsibility for the parents. they are expecting my mom to allow the parents to stay on the property till they die. the parents and my moms ex inlaws are rude and inconsiderate towards her and she, a senior herself, is struggling to cope emotionally and financially. can she be forced to allow the parents to stay on the property till they die? it is traumatising as she cannot move on with her life after a very painful divorce where her husband left her for a younger woman and he is still taunting her.
