Q: I forgot to sign the quit claim deed for the home and received a judgment against me for credit card debt. My ex wants to refinance the house but since I am still on it he can’t due to the judgment against me. What are my options to get me off the house?
A: I agree that you should sign and record a quitclaim deed. However, you might also want to contact your former spouse and see if there are any documents required by the lender. This could lessen the risk that your spouse will come after you for violating the divorce decree.
