I had a house before I married my husband, but had to refinance it a year later. His name is XXXXX XXXXX the mortgage, but according to Texas Law, he has been added to the deed.

How can I remove him from the deed? He is trying to contest this.
Hello,

You cannot unless he agrees to take his name off, or you refinance with his permission and take his name off. Otherwise, I am afraid there simply no other way to take his name off the deed per Tex. Prop. Code and Tex. Fam. Code. I am very sorry.
