I can't afford to take him back to court and he knows it. My concern is that if I sign the quit claim deed, I relinquish my rights to the house itself. now if the modification goes through, great my name is XXXXX XXXXX not I am still responsible for the loan with no claim on the house. If I Sign the modification, I'm stuck with my name on the loan for another 3 years , If I do neither the house goes into forclosure . so my credit is ruined either way, I take a huge risk signing the quit claim deed or I remain tied to him for the mod and my credit gets ruined again
is there any way to do a quit claim deed that says that once the modification is aproved, my name can be removed, otherwise it is not valid? Can the bank process the modification in his name alone with just our divorce decree?
thank you. You have confirmed my feelings on the matter now I just have to figure out how to make it happen
and you too
