You weren't served with papers advising you that you were being sued for divorce?
If you were never served with any papers then you have an option to file a Motion to Vacate Judgment, preferably through a lawyer, and ask the judge to start over from scratch. If you don't have any objection to the divorce or the way the property was handled then you can choose not to do this and just sign off on any paperwork your "ex" has.
At this point, the ball is in your court but those are really your option, 1) ask the court to vacate the judgment and start over, or 2) sign off on your "ex's" paperwork.
