I wish you had provided more information. I will assume that you are saying that you contributed money toward the mortgage payments someone else owed on a house, that you were not on the mortgage, and that now you would like to get back some of the money you paid. It doesn't look promising for you, but you should contact a lawyer who can get more of the details from you and then give you a more definite answer.
