Hi and welcome back to JA. Ray here to help you today. You would want to return to divorce court and file motion to enforce decree and order sale.You have right to seek court orders here and a forced sale.The court orders her expressly to split the proceeds.This is then enforceable by contempt. You could have lawyer send demand letter here and see if it is resolvable prior to taking it back to court.Court could also lien the property by giving you a judgment. I am sorry you are having to deal with all of this.
