I am really sorry to hear this. Unfortunately she does have a legit interest in the house based on you voluntarily putting her on the deed. However, you may be able to seek any money you have paid both to the house maintenance and mortgage payments and on her behalf such as her attorney costs. By you filing suit for these damages it may offset any money she might get out of an equity division of the house. Sometimes just suing will force her to the table to mediate something that makes sense.
