After I received the judgement, he told me that I was on my own as far as collection.... Read more »
However, your question compels me to ask whether or not you have consulted an experienced securities lawyer to review the settlement offer itself? If not you might be making a big mistake. An experienced security lawyer can get you more money if they are good.

If you have a written lease this subject will be presented somewhere in it. At best all you can do is restrict the number of visitors, the times when they can visit and requiring much more lead time than they just gave you.
Thank you for the response. Back taxes aren’t an issue. I was stating that there were taxes owed. I’m just trying to find out if I have a leg to stand on here. The person I initially rented from is no longer the owner and the current owner is dead with no heirs that I’m aware of.

The answer you received from Mr. Thorgaard is correct.
I write merely to suggest turning this situation around and considering filing for divorce yourself, before the mother of your children does. The Court might not have jurisdiction over the children if she stays gone too long.
