I also believe he cashed out his 401 k while we were still married and had someone forge my signature, how do I find out about that
Expert:  FamilyAnswer replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for the additional information. If the divorce decree states that your Ex was awarded the home, then you would need to transfer ownership to him. A quit claim deed is the easiest way to do this. I am not sure why he waited since 2008 to do this but the decree is still in effect and you would need to comply or else he could take you back to court and seek to hold you in contempt. Now, the issue with the 401K should have been addressed as well during the proceedings. If you just learned of this now, you may have to try and take him back to court and get what you are entitled to, if there was forgery.
