Thank you for the additional information. Again I am sorry he is not mature enough to handle the situation. It would be in his best interest to sign the quit claim along with you fiance`s promise the home will be refinanced and he will no longer have liability for the underlying loan. Refinancing is likely the less expensive way to compel him to be removed from the deed. However, it sounds like he would be a burden to doing so in that situation as well.
Regardless, if he is unwilling to be compliant your fiance may bring a contempt action against the ex-spouse to show cause why he has not facilitating the order of dissolution. The county clerk should have forms or some county websites have online forms in which you can download. Here is a link to a sample county (Cobb) contempt form and information: www.portal.cobbcountyga.gov/images/documents/lawlibrary/forms/Contempt/ContemptPacket.pdf. It is possible that the court would effectuate the conveyance by signing deed during the contempt process. Even if the language is not clear, having a hearing may clarify the order and the judge will grant another order compelling the signing of a deed.
She may also try and attempt to file a letter with the court clerk explaining the situation and that the ex is refusing to sign and request an order be issued compelling him to do so. This may or may not work but is worth a try.
Perhaps the mere threat that unless he signs she will have no other choice but to bring a contempt action against him will persuade him to sign.
Police officers are very unlikely to get involved in a civil dispute regarding trespass of an ex-spouse and new spouse living in a home in which he vacated. They may come out once but they will not put up with a sour ex-spouse calling all the time about a situation like this. In addition, the locks may be changed to prevent him from entering without breaking in which could be considered a criminal offense.
I hope this helps and the matter can be resolved without the use of court or further legal fees.
All my best & encouragement.
