Im having a wobble and am on the verge of a panic attack. Long story but my Brother in law who my Husband hated is now blackmailing me. I have to sign a contract giving more money to my stepkids or he will stop the business sale. He has just cut off my dividends this month . Without them i can afford my bills for 2-3 months with my savings as i only work part time. So im on danger of having to sell my house quickly unless things change. Ive had constant stress from funances. Has anyone else had anything similar. Ive not had chance to grieve properly
Hi, what an awful situation! If I were you I’d put the sale of the business into the hands of a solicitor & tell your brother in law he is to have no contact directly with you about it? Financially you could see if your entitled to universal credit?
@JaneD This a……e is still at it? I’m afraid you really have one course and that’s to deal through a solicitor with no direct contact as @Flower_garden says. Perhaps see Citizens Advice as well.
Also write your will now to exclude these greedy p….s so if anything happens to you they get what they deserve - nothing.
I really feel for you, they are trying to exploit your grief and situation when what you need is love and support. xxxxxx
Mike75 it just gets worse. I am going down hill fast. He is 1 step ahead of me all the time. And is so slimy with it
Mike has hit the nail on the head - Get some good legal advice - soon.
I have a solicitor shes recommended i dont sign his contract. But if i dont i will not get any money at all. I have to keep biting my tongue and hoping i get a break soon
@JaneD Follow your solicitor’s advice. Your bastard in law is offering you a little now to rob you of more later. He might make that worse if you give in.
You can talk to any institution you make regular payments to and explain the delay in getting your money and many will be sympathetic and make an arrangement with you to pay when the money comes through.
See if your solicitor can speed things up as delay makes it worse for you.
You are in a hard place. Love and support xxx
Jane I’m so sorry to read this and angry that this happening to you. Take a deep breath and take your solicitors advice. He’s doing this because he knows you are in a vulnerable place. Have nothing to do with him and tell him any communication will go through your solicitor. Hopefully he will back off when he sees you standing up to him.
Sending you a big hug
No no , no you cant put up with this ! Get to a solicitor quickly !! He cant stop your dividends to business ! Thats illegal surely …
Unfortunately it is legal until probate goes through. They were paying them up to last month, as if not it would cause hardship. But they can stop anytime. They normally would go into a pot at the solicitors. They will have to be paid from probate being granted, but thats taking forever as he is delaying everything by sending horrid emails to my solicitor.
Now my stepson is sending me nasty txts again. Tellimg me im a liar my kids are cretins and we are all peasants. I honestly cant take any more from that family.
Block his number on your phone !! You don’t have to put up with this harassment ! Xx
Keep the texts and inform the police as its an offence to send malicious communications .go and see your solicitor and say its making you ill .as it clearly is
Yep i agree and martyn is right you can go to police for harassment ! Xx
