Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good morning,I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
So long as the divorce decree or your Marital Settlement Agreement states that your ex is responsible for half of the expenses of the property---the fact that they signed the deed over to you so the property could be refinanced is not a legal basis for them to refuse to continue to pay their share of the expenses.
If the agreement was not made an order of the court in the divorce, then you will have to sue your ex in civil court for breach of contract---but you will be able to get a judgment if they cease paying their share.

This seems like a very crucial matter for you, and your questions and issues suggest that an in-depth conversation might best suit your needs. If you are interested, for a very nominal charge I can offer you a private phone conference as opposed to continuing in this question and answer thread which is searchable and viewable by the public.Please know that I answered your question in good faith, and with the expectation that you would act similarly and rate my service to you. If I have already provided you with the information you asked for and you have no additional questions, would you please now rate my service to you so I can be compensated for assisting you?Thanks in advance,Doug
