Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If she is not cooperating with the court ordered sale, then you must go back to court and file a motion for an order to show cause for contempt of court. She is bound to cooperate to allow for the sale of the house and if she is refusing, you take her to court on a contempt motion and ask for the court to order her out of the house (eviction) and grant you possession of the home pending the sale process as a penalty for her not cooperating.
