I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

What did the separation agreement say about the division of assets?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
it stated all assets were divided and the other party did receive equity from the home.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
There is a 10 year gap between the separation agreement and the divorce certificate. Both were filed by the other party

And is only one party's name on title?
