So I purchased a home in Normal, IL. My orginal plans were to gut the place out and fix it up so that me, my g/f and our new born could move in. Little did I know my g/f decided to enforce child support on the day I closed on the property! I didn't find out until I was served a couple months later. The screwed up part is that she was living with me at my moms at the time she filed so of course she was told to move back to her moms and everything has been down hill from there. Now I have a home I can barely afford becuase the financing was based on my current income and now that income has been reduced by 20%. The property has been gutted to the studs which is aproximately 1,085 sfqft. My new plan is to fix this house and get it rented fast but given the child support that was enforced I'm having a hard time obtaining financing to finish the project. I have access to $17K through six credit cards but now-a-days that is a very bad move for financing to finsih the house. Can anyone offer an advice? It would be greatly appreciated.
