Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Welcome and thank you for your question. Will you be obtaining a mortgage to purchase the home? Yes there are documents that can be signed. If there is a lender they will have their own requirements.
A lender will require her to waive homestead and may require a quit claim deed. Whatever they require you to have they should prepare for you. I can provide you a sample if that if would help. As far as filing for divorce will your wife have an attorney?
If it is really friendly I would hire one attorney to do all the paper work so everything is in proper order. You and your wife agree on the distribution of assets and any other matters involved and have an attorney put the settlement agreement in the proper format and bring it to the court. You will save a great deal of money but you will also have legally correct settlement agreement and an explanation of what needs to be discussed.
Where in Colorado are you located so I can provide a link for divorce attorneys that provide free consultations? I cannot tell you how many time people have tried to go this without an attorney and there are future, costly issues, that could have been avoided.
