Can I get equity in my home?…

2023.06.06 04:25 livitow Can I get equity in my home?…

My wife and I met about 13 years ago. She was a widow and financed a home with the late husband’s life insurance. They were in the middle of divorce proceedings. He committed suicide when he was served the papers. She put down ~$80,000. She had a credit rating of 500 or so and no concept of budgeting or finance. It was a boon for her, and a prudent decision.
We started living together in late 2012 to early 2013(I moved in with her). I educated myself with her help, and I inevitably obtained a 6 figure job. We were common law in TX at that time, and she and her 3 children were on my work’s insurance, and she as my wife. I referred to her as my wife and the kids as my children. We became officially married in 2017.
Collectively I’ve been paying half our mortgage for ~9 years. We had a rough patch in 2015 where I moved out for a while. I’ve made significant upgrades/repairs to the home including a new 4 ton inside and outside a/c unit and all the repairs on the pre-existing unit. I’ve paid for all the maintenance/upkeep and even agreed to do a home equity loan for a pool. I foolishly agreed, thinking I was part of the $50,000 home equity loan, because I was there for the signing(she says I didn’t sign anything) and I was involved in decisions for the lender, and my credit score was constantly referenced. I’m stupid for not having confirmed, but I never would have dreamed she would have excluded me. We were legally married during this time and happy.
Short story long. I’m now finding out I own zero of the property, except for the half acre lot next to us I bought a couple years later, of which she is also on the deed somehow, even though I bought it solely, and have been paying all of the note on it.
I want my equity in ownership of the home. She’s denying it.
Can I acquire it in small claims litigation or does it need to be divorce? And if so would I even “have a leg to stand on”?

Vintage quilt donations
I’m back again with another neat bin of donations. I sort fabric at ACR in Austin Tx, and we come across some cool old stuff. This was all from one bin, and we were told that nothing was older than the 1960s.
I included a few pics of non quilted but old sewn child’s clothes too, I hope that’s ok! It was all very neat.

only concern with colder spots are: Asthma (dont like the congest feeling from wild coldness), old people (dont want sick or slip and boom taken out by some stupid harsh winter when they prob could get 20+ years still)
I want to get like a LCOL with a good pay. So I can have animals, land, home, etc at kind of younger age. Temps arent 2 concerning, crime rates/rising big factor, enviroment/natural disasters are a concern (ie dont want wildfires ie CA or i 10/20 years for my area to be struggling for Water (AZ)?).
Not that I plan 2, but I would prefer a "logical" idea for gun stuff, mostly with this is just if someone is breaking into my home/still on my prop/ attacking me/ being a danger (crime going up i dont want to get charged on some BS if someone tries to rob/home invade) (NJ),
I would prefer low retirement tax implications (this would not be for my ie not for my 401k withdraw but for elderly people who I will be taking care of their disburstments ie SS/ annuity/ forget other shit but perhaps a benefit state to the. On that topic a state with no inheritance/death tax.
medical care/something within 4 hours for major surgery pref ie cancer (sure most places have this i not could use plane/drive from Lcol savings (doubt needed 4 me, old people mb but both good health, poor knees. a decent cancer screening state would b good (do those rankings even exist?)
States with entertainment of some level would be a plus:
really anything just need something:
ie i like Bball, (Indiana (maybe lcol with high pay), bull riding/horse riding (viewing not doing) might b cool, golfing (for old people not me), socialization opportunities for old people maybe?, swimming, fishing, catfishing, sewing, farming,hunting, gardening, mudfishing, College football clubs, nba teams, nfl teams, mlb, museaum, historical marks, hiking trails, national parks, scenery.
One day in my LCOL decent/high pay job I hope to have someone working for me that can solve these questions so I dont have to both yall. Also if needed I dont have a ACCT focus. I do like taxes (dont know anything at all from college at all at all.) I dont mind other ie just standard act1 etc. jobs. I have few years supervisor exp and lots of years for construction fam business. I plan to like on applications if I cant get anything 55k+ legit ie 3 year supervisor? 3 year supervisor that used _____ required skill for 1 year, ads/customer service/ job req/ finance planning/budgeting @ construction ( I did actually do this just in no way what a pro co. would do more like hours as a kid figuring our product price/costs/ pricing/ft etc. I can say I did that family business for 8+ years idk how that looks resume wise but I include skills in there a job might want ie communication or whatever.
for the like req skills somehting like
bill dot com or
would few dedicated hours of yt not get me to a beg level to start a job? like Bill dot com get invoice bring to there, document how Co. wants??
sql will get my ass but not applying for many with that in req.
Thank yall

2023.05.29 18:47 BabyDragonFlyOF F22 vinyard maintenance worker.

I don’t know where else to put this. And its really just complaining. Im a laborer at a vinyard in Fredericksburg TX. Ive worked here twice, the first time I was fired, in my opinion, unjustly. It started with my boss and coworker hitting on me, to them both touching me and making inappropriate comments about my body. I was asked to train and “keep an eye on” a different coworker. When reporting his half assed work in the vines, boss went and told said coworker I said something about his work and as expected i was ostracized. Soon I set a boundary with my boss who also happened to be an alcoholic and what some would consider verbally abusive. He reacted strongly and within a couple days let me go, apparently bc I deserved better than in the vines, i needed to go to college, and lastly I was on my phone too much. All of which were very random seeing as i was doing almost double the physical labor as the other employees.
Fast forward a year, change in management, I get the job back. And begin working. Im 4 months into it now. A whole different team. Two men had worked alone on 60 acres for almost a year. They work incredibly quickly. One man hired after me. First 2 months went well. Except the drunk phone calls from the recently assigned assistant vinyard manager. One asking me on a date, another threatening my job, although he neither has the power or legitimate reason to do so. Things have gotten worse. Im very much excluded from the morning greetings, the drives to get lunch, and in the rows banter. I was informed that they all think im having sex with my happily married with kids boss, although he has made a couple awkward comments, less than the first. Whenever they get McDonald’s, a pamphlet explaining their hiring process appears on my little corner of the table. This has happened 3 times now, so its no accident. I mentioned everything to my boss, he said he’ll talk to them tomorrow. Idk if that will make it any better. Im doing my best not to pop off on these guys in fear of loosing this job, which I absolutely love. I don’t know what to do. I feel hopeless and exhausted.
Tl;dr - i feel as though I’m being mistreated, threatened and ostracized bc i am a woman in a labor trade.

2023.05.26 03:44 Zealousideal_Gur6668 My (22f) parents' neighbor's dog always shows up on their property. We think they neglect her. What can we do?

I have never posted on Reddit before. Obv not giving names but for legal help this is in Texas. My folks live on a few acres outside our city and have just a few neighbors on their street. One such couple has an extremely sweet staffie/pittie dog (lets call her Sugar) who for the last 2+ years has been periodically showing up at my folks' house. They have fence/gates which are usually closed but there's a gap the dog gets through. She comes over often during storms or when ppl set off fireworks as she is very scared of the noise, sometimes in the middle of the night begging for shelter. Here's what we know: Sugar shows up about 1/month or so, recently much more often. She always has both live fleas and flea dirt and is dirty (easy to see bc part of her coat is white). The NFH owners live on several acres and do not close their main gate. Other than this we do not know their fence situation. From the few times we've actually talked to the NFH, they have claimed at different times: - sugar is their young kid's dog - sugar is their outside guard dog - they flea treat her monthly -sugar lives outside full time For obvious reason, I only believe the last point. Sugar is not the breed or temperament for a guard dog (plus, isn't a guard dog supposed to stay on property to, ya know, GUARD IT?). By the amount of fleas and other factors we think they keep her outside but unsecured and we don't think she has a dog house or adequate shelter. She has had fleas every. Single. Time. She has shown up. This poor dog is gonna get anemic from all the damn bugs. Another thing to note is that this dog is extremely starved for affection. She is whiny and sad every time she shows up and will barely let us stop petting her. Her owners barely reply to my mom's texts to come get her and barely seem to dive a da$m.
So here's the WWYD part: Is there anything we can do for this dog? We've been hesitant to contact the humane society bc of her breed and how they may treat her. We're also not sure they're doing anything that actually violates tx law other than our local leash law ordinance. They neglect her, but she's fed. My parents have thought about reporting them or just letting her hang out and see if the NFH give enough of a da$m to come get her without us hounding them. We're also unsure of the legality of this. Any advice would be appreciated.

2023.05.25 17:27 CardanoCrusader Texas Creating Gold-Backed Crypto

Texas could become the first state in the nation to issue its own digital currency based on gold and silver. The Texas Senate could vote on Senate Bill 2334 this week. A similar bill in the Texas House, House Bill 4903, has not yet advanced.
If the Texas digital currency proposal becomes law, money could be spent with a debit card by people anywhere in the world, not just within Texas. Texas would mint its own coins. Anyone could create an account, the coins and digital currency would be accepted anywhere that debit cards are accepted.
In summer 2018, Texas began operating the nation’s only state-run bullion depository. The Texas Gold Depository is a Class III vault (the highest security level) that can hold up to 12 million ounces of gold, platinum or palladium, and a highly secure storage area that can hold more than 17.5 million ounces of silver. The 40,000-square-foot facility for TxBD was constructed on 10 acres in Leander, Texas, just north of Austin and completed in January 2020.
All U.S. citizens and residents, including businesses, trusts and estates, are eligible to apply for a TxBD account to deposit bullion for safekeeping. (TxBD does not require applicants to reside in Texas to qualify for an account.) As of June 2021, nearly 1,000 account holders had deposits at TxBD, with the average account valued at approximately $140,000
It is not clear how this new law, if it passed, would be reconciled with the US Constitution. Section 8 permits Congress to coin money and to regulate its value. Section 10 denies states the right to coin or to print their own money. Individual states can issue bonds and other debt instruments, and Texas may argue that their debit card would simply be a debt instrument, similar to a bond. As long as they are not used to avoid taxes and can be exchanged — or ultimately exchanged — for U.S. dollars, they would be legal

2023.05.23 18:33 ElephantTerminator22 Follow-on School After ECP

I'm going into NMMI under their AROTC ECP to get my commission as an Armor Lieutenant either in the proper Army or the Guard (TX hopefully, under the 278th ACR).
I was hoping to go to Norwich University after NMMI since they have a relationship regarding Criminal Justice, but I then remembered that there's no armored units up in Vermont; just a cavalry formation attached to the 86th IBCT.
I saw the VT NG post on Insta recently showing off the new lieutenants coming from NMMI to the their state's Guard, and one of them was an Armor Lieutenant. I don't know if that was a general picture of some NMMI graduates the VT NG decided to use, or the lieutenants who are actually going to their state for their Bachelor's.
So I came here to ask how follow-on schooling for ECP works; are newly commissioned ECP lieutenants supposed to get their Bachelor's in a state that has their branch (Armor in Texas, Idaho, Tennessee), or do they go to their BOLC after getting their Bachelor's and serve with the nearby unit (such as the 86th IBCT for Norwich) regardless of their branch until then?
This is probably a simple question but I figured I'd ask to be sure.

2023.05.22 20:44 abi0012 New to this! I’d love some advice :)

Hi, everyone! I just bought my first entry level metal detector. We live in a 2 acre property in TX and I want to explore it all! I haven’t found anything yet, I think I’m being shy with my digging. Can anyone show me how deep/wide your digs actually are?? I’ve “found” something, I start digging and then test the area again and the detector cannot read anything, and so I get discouraged. So how deep should I go? My detector has a 10 inch depth sensitivity.
Any other advice is appreciated!
Thank you.

2023.05.20 04:23 CarterDiMaggio The Full Jack Marston Biography (1895-1976)

The Full Jack Marston Biography (1895-1976)
This is my idea for what Jack Marston’s life looked like, hope you enjoy! (This takes place in the Real World, not the Red Dead Universe. Characters are the same, but places are real life geographical locations.)
Jack was born in 1895 to John and Abigail Marston. He lives out his earliest years as the youngest member of the Van Der Linde Gang and shares a close bond with his mother, Hosea Matthews and Arthur Morgan who taught him how to read, write and fish. He stayed with the gang until it ultimately disbanded in 1899.
Jack moved around with his parents for several years, eventually settling in Beecher’s Hope, just outside Abilene, Texas in 1907. Jack spent his earlier teenage years reading, writing, and doing menial jobs around the ranch. He was desperate to form a connection to his near absent father, who would constantly leave the ranch for weeks at a time. By the time he was 16, Jack had begun to despise his father for practically abandoning his family and began to teach himself how to ride, shoot and rope. After John returned from his Government Assignment, he was more eager to form a connection with his son, and took him out hunting, roping and herding. Though still resentful of his presence, Jack began to feel a stronger connection with his father, this would end abruptly in the Autumn of 1911, when the ranch was stormed by several FBI agents and Soldiers. John was killed in the battle, while Jack and Abigail managed to escape. They later returned to the ranch and buried John’s body atop the small cliff overlooking the property. Jack would stay at the ranch for three more years, enhancing his shooting and riding skills, and taking care of the property in absence of his father, all while entertaining the idea for revenge against Agent Ross, who ordered the attack on the ranch. Jack would eventually abandon the ranch after Abigail died in 1914.
After several weeks of searching, Jack finally managed to track down Ross, who was hunting ducks with his brother on the South bank of the Rio Grande, in Mexico. Jack confronts Ross, who shows no remorse for killing and betraying his father, and says he will not hesitate to kill Jack either. The encounter ends in a climactic duel, which Jack ultimately wins, avenging John.
After the killing, Jack wanders throughout West Texas, Southeastern New Mexico and Northern Chihuahua, Mexico for several years. Enhancing his shooting abilities even further. He learns to hunt and camp in the wilderness, learns how to handle various forms of weaponry, and several bar fights strengthen his knuckles. He is bitter about the World, and sees everyone in a negative light. He was involved in several gunfights, and is confirmed to have killed ten men during his time in the West (not including Ross). Jack was arrested in 1916 for Unarmed Assault after he beat up three Mexican men at a bar in Las Cruces, NM. In early 1917, Jack, with the assistance of a Native American man named Fuerte, tracked down and apprehended a group of cattle rustlers near White Sands, NM. After getting arrested again in May for larceny, Jack escaped the tiny jailhouse and fled to Arizona where he laid low for a few weeks. A bounty of $50 was offered for his capture.
The United States joined the First World War on April 4, 1917, and hundreds of thousands of men began making the journey to Europe. Jack, who had become fed up with his life, decided it would be better to die an honorable death in the war than in the middle of the desert, and went to a local recruiting office. Initially hesitant to fight for the very people who killed his family, Jack begins basic training. Using the skills he learned during his time as an outlaw, he quickly rises to one of the best men in his platoon. He is strong, has great endurance, and is very agile. As time goes on, Jack becomes close with several members of the platoon, young men around his age, who adore his stories of his time as an outlaw. Jack begins to have a more positive view of the world around him, and for the first time in a long time, feels like he is at home with his fellow soldiers. Jack and his platoon eventually ship off to France on October 16, 1917. He fights in the battle of Amiens, where he kills 5 enemy German soldiers, and saves the life of his close friend and fellow soldier, Ray McArthur, who would later return the gesture after a stray bullet momentarily blinded Jack. After Amiens, Jack and his platoon were dispatched to the Meuse-Argonne Offensive, where Jack killed four more Germans.
Jack was nominated for the Medal of Honor, for his bravery, but did not win it. He was disappointed, though was mostly happy that he made it out of the war alive. McArthur, however, was not so lucky and Jack traveled to Ray’s hometown of Syracuse, New York, to attend his funeral. In 1919, Jack began work at a large ranch in Oklahoma, where he stopped two Comanche tribesmen from stealing a horse. The local sheriff, impressed by Marston’s skills, recommended him for the Texas Rangers. Jack was still distrustful of the government, but hard-as-nails Ranger Frank Hamer, who was also briefly an outlaw before joining law enforcement, convinced Jack to join. He was officially sworn in on August 22, 1919, and was stationed in Dallas. He was partnered with the tobacco chew addict and son of a hard-as-nails cowboy Patrick Rudabaugh. The two were immediately friends, and loved to reminisce about their time in the War, the Old West days and told stories of their fathers.
Throughout the 1920s, Marston and Rudabaugh enforced Prohibition laws on the citizens of Dallas, and were involved in several raids and arrested a notorious Irish bootlegger in 1922.The next year, Jack met a young woman named Lucy in Speakeasy Patrick had convinced him to go to, the two immediately fell in love and were married four months later. In 1924, Jack clung to the back of a Ford Model T for while it sped through country roads just outside the city. He managed to maneuver to the front of the vehicle and force the fleeing criminal to stop. Jack arrested the man, and the event soon made him a Texas legend. In 1928, in the Countryside near the town of Palo Pinto, TX, Jack, Patrick and a team of thirteen other rangers engaged in a large gunfight with Gangsters. The fight left four gangsters dead, and eight injured as well as two rangers dead and one injured. The gunfight became a part of Texas lore and glorified Marston even further. Many began to forget the legacy of John, and became fascinated with Jack, “The Outlaw turned Lawman.” In the summer of that same year, Jack and several of his fellow rangers traveled back to New Mexico where his bounty had never been taken down. A ceremony was held and Marston personally apologized to the sheriff, who had long since retired. He paid the local police station the $50 and was officially no longer a wanted man.
Jack’s first child, a daughter, whom they named Mary, was born on February 10, 1929. Now with more responsibilities as a father, Jack began to take less dangerous assignments, which gave him more time to practice his writing. In the summer of 1929, he wrote a script for a Western film, which was picked up by a director in San Francisco. It was heavily edited, and though Jack intended the original story to take the length of a full movie, it was reduced to a 10-minute short. The film had moderate success, and garnered Jack some attention in Hollywood. Jack’s second child, a boy named Hosea, was born on May 1, 1931. The next year, Jack joined Patrick in an operation to take down an Auto-theft ring that had been terrorizing Dallas for weeks. They eventually succeeded, and arrested the ringleader, an Italian-American gangster from New Orleans on July 16, 1932. The event brought Marston’s name back into the headlines, though a reporter from the Houston Chronicle dug deep into Marston’s past and published an article on how Marston had killed “upstanding hero” Edgar Ross in cold blood back in 1914. A trial ensued, with Ross’s family paying a team of esteemed lawyers from Fort Worth to represent their case. After a large investigation by Texan and Federal authorities, Ross was ruled to have been in the wrong for betraying John in 1911, but Jack was also reprimanded for killing him, as “Murder is never the answer, in any which scenario.” Marston was not punished, though he was discharged from the Rangers. Despite this, the Marston name was not tarnished, and many people were on Jack’s side in the matter. The Texas Rangers were disbanded by governor “Ma” Ferguson soon after Marston’s discharge. Jack and Patrick began pooling their money to buy back the old ranch at Beecher’s Hope, which had been bought by a wealthy businessman from Oklahoma City shortly after Marston abandoned it in 1914. They eventually struck a deal with the businessman, who agreed to sell them the 500 Acre Plot for $10,000. The man informed Marston that the buildings had been torn down and his parents' coffins had been moved to a cemetery in Abilene. Marston was angered by this, and decided to pull out of the deal. Patrick understood Marston’s viewpoint, and used his share of the money to buy a large plot of land 20 miles North of El Paso.
Returning home, Marston felt like his family’s story had been forgotten about, for the house they had built was gone and their bodies moved to some unmarked graves in the middle of nowhere. Using his memories and testimony from surviving gang member Josiah Trelawney, he wrote a Memoir about his father’s life and the story of the Van Der Linde Gang, a group that had not been spoken about in over 20 years. Jack eventually finished the book in 1934, and titled it Red Dead. The novel instantly became a New York Times Bestseller, and it catapulted the names John Marston, Dutch Van Der Linde and Jack himself into superstardom. The same year, Jack’s third child, another girl named Vivian was born on March 23, 1934. Jack would go on to have one more daughter, Mae, who was born on July 18, 1936.
In 1936, two years after Red Dead was published, Marston submitted a script for a Western film based on the events his father took part in while trying to capture and track down his former friends turned enemies back in 1911. Jack titled the script “Dead Man” and it was picked up by famed film director Ford Beebe. The film was released in 1937 under the same title and starred Henry Fonda. Dead Man was a massive commercial success, and only furthered Marston’s reputation within Hollywood. That same year, Marston would move his family to Los Angeles so he could practice screenwriting full time. Throughout the rest of the 1930s and 1940s Jack would write several successful and unsuccessful screenplays. Known for the raw action used in his films, he was particularly successful in the Western and War Genres. He wrote a brief comedic short for American Soldiers fighting in WW2 in 1943 that was quite popular. In 1944, Marston helped write the script for both Tall in the Saddle and The Fighting Seabees, which both starred actor John Wayne.
On July 18, 1947, a secretary who worked for Warner Brothers was found murdered at the Union Pacific Rail Yard near Pasadena. Homicide detectives Rusty Galloway and Cole Phelps investigated the case, and Marston was briefly suspected of the crime due to his background as a killer, but was proven innocent. The real culprit was a film executive named Leo Travis who had been having an affair with the young woman and did not want his wife to discover their relationship. Marston was present at the trial when Travis was convicted. He was executed on April 10, 1951 for the crime.
Throughout the 1950s and 1960s, Marston continued to write his own screenplays and assist others in writing their scripts. He gained much notoriety for helping to write and direct the 1962 WaAction film The Longest Day starring Robert Mitchum and John Wayne. The film would go on to win two Academy Awards and one Golden Globe. On June 18, 1965, Marston was officially awarded his Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the ceremony was large and Marston delivered a thirty-minute-long speech detailing how when he was in his early 20s, roaming the vast and lonely expanse of the near dead Old West, how he thought he was simply going to end up shot to death in the middle of nowhere. He teared up when he said “My mother always wanted me to be a good man, famous for the right reasons. I guess I finally made her wish come true.” His son and daughters, now married and with children of their own, had a big celebration back at Jack’s home. Patrick visited from El Paso and the two reminisced about old times and how much things had changed since then. They ended the night by toasting all the fallen lawmen whom they had worked with over the years. After everyone left, Jack took a special moment to toast his father, he knew John wasn’t perfect, but he did try. And considering the circumstances, Jack’s early years could have turned out to be a lot different.
Marston’s final film was the 1969 Western/Drama “Love Finds a Way” based on written accounts from founding Van Der Linde Gang member Arthur Morgan. The story follows the Outlaw’s search for love as he navigates the troubled waters of accepting what he is, and how the world around him sees him as evil. The film had moderate success and was nominated at the Academy Awards for Best Original Screenplay.
Marston retired from Hollywood in 1970, and lived at his estate in Brentwood Park, California until his death on January 12, 1976. He was buried in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery alongside Ralph Valentino and Marilyn Monroe.

2023.05.19 21:37 Hot_Committee_1872 Should I Choose Emory or Rice Uni?

I recently got my decisions for Emory University (Atlanta, GA) and Rice University (Houston, TX) and I have no idea which one to choose. I am going to be a computer science major (as a transfer). I know that Rice definitely has a strong CS program but Emory seems to be more fitting for the type of culture I want a school to have. One important thing for me is having the best education I can have that will allow me to have great opportunities outside of school, but to also go to a school where I feel like I will be able to be my most creative and happy self.
Also, I am transferring from a small college (4,000 undergrad, 300 acres) and didn't like the fact that it was small because I felt like I saw everything and knew too many people. I want to go to a school that is diverse, with different types of people but will also allow me to grow further in my CS career (especially since I want to explore the field).
Cost isn't really important since I would only pay $4,000 at Emory (will be covered by outside scholarships) and will get a full-ride at Rice. Please help me!
