My boyfriend was left land in his father's will when he passed. His fathers brother (uncle) also has land next to his w/ a house & lake on it. Well, the uncle sent my b/f a letter saying he was selling his & if he wanted to sell them together as one he will cut him a check at settlement, he had to sign to release the land for sale. He's been getting letters saying the land is sold & going to settlement in the beginning of July. It went to settlement & the check was cut for $22,000.00, the thing is it went to his mom & grandmother for child support. He knew nothing about this..if he did he would have never released it forsale & would have just built on it instead. In none of the letters did it mention that the money for that land would not go to him. The funny thing is his mother didn't even raise him, she was in jail & rehab for his whole life for the exception of 2 years. His mother received $16,000 & his grandmom $6,000. Are they allowed to do this??? It was left for him, is it right for his money be allowed to pay for his own child support? Thanks for any help..sorry it's kinda long..I'm just upset b/c we were gonna put that money down on a condo.
