Question by Darrel: Need advice ASAP about where my son should live?
My ex moved out 3 years ago and the kids have lived with me. We are processing our divorce now, and have a court date on the 24th. I live in Pasadena, my ex lives in Seal Beach.

We have real estate we own in Kansas City. Last summer she took my son out there for the summer and was to work with him on his weight. He supposedly lost some weight, but as the summer drew to an end, she asked me to allow him to stay out there for the first semester of school while he continued to lose weight. He did so poorly in 9th grade (online high school, nearly straight Fs) that we were going to have him use his grandparents address to go to Redondo Beach for 10th grade. Her argument for him to stay with her in Kansas City was that if he went to Redondo now, he would be ostracized as the fat kid. She made a compelling argument and I agreed to the semester. She then moved back to California, leaving my son with a business partner (who also wants to marry her). I’ve NEVER been happy about him being out there without family, but he was doing well in school and it was supposed to be just the one semester.

Now the semester is over, and my son made plans with me while he was with me on Christmas break that he would return. He is supposed to fly back today, but is now telling me he made his own decision to stay out there. Obviously I don’t agree with it, but his school was snowed out and they extended his semester until the 24th. I want him to finish his semester, but I’m concerned about letting him stay longer out there.

My attorney has told me that I need to get my son out here before we go to court, which is my desire, so now I’m torn. Also, had a problem with Indymac who illegally sold me home out from under me, so I’ve put a deposit on a 3 bedroom apartment closer to my work AND his mom, which is also a better school district.

Yes, I’m sure my life is a big mess, don’t need that pointed out any further. My issues is this… my son NEEDS to be here in California where his family is. However, this is the first time he has done well in school, and he likes it out there.

I’m sure my forcing him to come home will create issues, coupled with my relocating, it won’t be easy. The guy he is staying with is generally a good guy, but there are some concerns. I think his main goal in helping is because he wants to marry my ex, and I’m concerned about what will happen when he realizes she won’t.

Psychologically speaking, what is worse for my son? Forcing him out here now and hope he’ll get over it, or letting him stay out there without a parent?

Question by Astrolion: What do you think about sheriffs knocking on doors to collect taxes ?
Wasn’t it considered one of the problems in England, that the tax collector would come banging on your door to collect taxes and intimidate people into paying with whatever they possessed.

Well here in Johnson County, Kansas (I did not grow up here and I am newer to the area) if you don’t pay your real property taxes a “tax warrant” will be issued and the Johnson County Sheriff will come knocking on your door to collect. From my search of the web it seems a tax warrant places a lien on not only on the real property (your house) but also your personal possessions, which they could take and sell to pay the tax.

In Michigan, when real property taxes were unpaid, no one came knocking at your door. The unpaid tax simply placed a lien on the property, which collected interest and fees. After I believe a 2 year period in most areas the property was place for “tax sale” and the lien was paid at that time. Even though I despise property taxes, I see this as a better systems, since the tax is related to the real property.

I see knocking on doors by sheriff deputies a system of threat and intimidation. Something that should not be happening in the United States.

What do you think? Do you know if they do stuff like this in your State? Makes me not want to own anything, especially with the exceptionally high property taxes I see in most States. Do you think this is part of the failing real estate market?

If you have this in your State, write your Congressmen or your city officials and complain, if you disagree with these types of actions.

Apparently I was not clear – in Kansas where the sheriff knocks on the door – they also sell properties at tax sale – however – a tax warrant would also allow them to take and sell your personal property as well.
I know what “foreclosure” is – that is not the question

Welcome to your opinion. I’d rather talk to a sheriff than lose my home to a tax sale. I doubt a tax warrant in that county affects personal property.

Quote: After I believe a 2 year period in most areas the property was place for “tax sale” and the lien was paid at that time

Paid; means they SELL YOUR HOME TO PAY THE TAXES. It’s called a tax foreclosure.

NOT a better system.

Question by Wife of Nephi: If the Mormons are right about Eden, should everyone with means be buying real estate near Kansas City, MO?
Wilford Woodruff quoting Brigham Young (1879):

[spelling as original diary] Again Presdet [sic] Young said Joseph the Prophet told me that the garden of Eden was in Jackson Co Missouri, & when Adam was driven out of the garden of Eden He went about 40 miles to the Place which we Named Adam Ondi Ahman, & there built an Altar of Stone & offered Sacrifize [sic]. That Altar remains to this day. I saw it as Adam left it as did many others, & through all the revolutions of the world that Altar had not been disturbed.
