Bullhead City, Mohave County, AZ. Met a woman 2.5 yrs ago. We had a relationship destined to be as domestic partners (like a marriage). I lived by myself. She lived in apartment with 1 yr lease exp. 28 Feb 2013. I stayed in her apartment mostly on weekends.
I bought a house as a single man in Sept 2012, $50,000 down, monthly mortgage. The house needed work which I have been doing since purchase. I lived in house with minimum comforts and furniture, therefore house stayed almost empty while I worked.
We shopped for the house together and shared plans for it just like we were a married couple. She stayed over in house 1 or 2 days per month to share in some work, but was there mostly in the daytime.
She moved out of her apartment and moved in to "our" house on February 1, 2013. Therefore nearly all furniture and other household stuff was hers. To show my love for her, we agreed to have the title modified to put her name on as Joint Tenants with Right of Survivorship
. That was finalized with title company and recorded in Mohave County on February 26, 2013.
We had a severe disagreement March 3rd and she moved out with all of her furniture and belongings on March 6, 2013. (Yes I know, it didn't last very long). She has ceased all communication since, except for a couple of extremely angry responses to some of my emails. My emails were asking her if she would sign legal documents to remove her name from title. She's made absolutely no comment in reference to house title issue. She has chosen to remain totally silent, unreachable and in hiding (I do know where she lives).
So now I'm a 'single man', but with her name on title. I paid a small consulting fee to a local attorney for advice. He said to mail her the documents by Certified Mail, Return Receipt Requested. I did that on May 2. On May 3 an attempt was made to deliver the mail, but supposedly no one was home and the carrier 'Left Notice'.
Finally, here's my question: If she refuses to sign, what legal action can I take to get a court order forcing her to remove her name.
For a second possible action I could take, I have written and verbal evidence (with witness) that she "assassinated my character" both by posting derogatory statements on internet social networks and by statements made to a witness in a public place and audible to the public. I guess I want to win one way or another in court with her punishment being to sign the documents removing her name from the title.
