She wants the house. We have $60K -$80k equity. She put in $40K cash in remodeling I did all the work myself (used to be a contactor). But she would refuse to live there now just to keep me in the city to torment me. Even at auction there would be some extra cash. I just wanted to know if I had to power to walk away. I offered to take 25K she said she should get everything because she put up all the money. I do not know if she would be willing to lose all of her cash if I can leagaly walk away.
