Coeur d'Alene, ID asked in Divorce for Idaho

Q: Am I responsible to store ex's personal belongings that he was to make arrangements to have picked up w/in 90 days

Ex has been incarcerated since 2018 to present. Am I responsible to store his belongings after divorce was final and gave him 90 days?

Also, if I was to pay ex for equity of home and nor him or his attorney provided Deed of Trust address. Do I still have to pay? Is there a statute of limitations?

A: As to your ex’s belongings. What I recommend is that you send him a letter, while he’s in jail, telling him that he has 30 days to have someone (preferably family) pick up his belongings and that if no one comes within 30 days, you will dispose of his things as you see fit.

As to your responsibility to pay equity: there is no statute of limitations. What your ex or his attorney will send you, following your payment, is a Quit Claim Deed, transferring ANY or ALL of ex’s interest in the property - to YOU. This will give you 100% of the equity in the home.
