What is the name of your state? Missouri

I left my husband and took my kids to Springfield, Missouri from California. I bought a house and paid for it in full with the cash I took from my husband's business account when I left. I put the deed to my new house in my step-father's name to hide it from my husband in case of divorce. About ten months later, I bought another house and also put this house in my step-father's name. The second house has a $170,000 note in my step-father's name but I'm supposed to be making the payments on it. The first house, I've been trying to sell to pay down the note on the second house but so far, no one's bought it. Now, I've had a falling out with my mom and step-dad and they are evicting me from the second house and also the first one. What can I do?

Get an Atty because you are going to need it on several fronts before this is all done.

But basically you gave the homes away ...yep real mess.

The praises "Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive" & "hoisted by your own petard" comes to mine. Good Luck.
