I am Franck. I live in the Dominican Republic and have a house and business in Florida. Thw wife took advantage of being more than 6 months in Florida to file for divorce. Dissolution of marriage was pronounced in May 2012 with a lump sum and alimony
,. She could also stay in the house for one year, after May 2013 I would get the house full ownership
and business full ownership. In May 2013, she asked me to stay until August 2013 in the house, I agreed. She left for her country where she was supposed to remain.
I contacted a real estate agent to have the house sold. It looks like the contract
with the realtor needs to be signed by me and ex wife.
I visited the house with the realtor, the house was dirt, with a lot of small issues to be fixed or resolved. ex wife had packed personal belongings and store it in a bedroom.
I contacted ex wife in her country to send the contract and have it returned signed ut she did not provide an address there. I told her I would be at the house the week end of October 4-6, she told me she would be at the house on the Sunday 6.
I spent 3 full days with friends to clean and fix the house which looks line neat ans attractive now. I store ex-wife stuff in the garage andI changed the main door lock
Ex-wife came on Sunday by 10AM, I asked her to sign the paper, she refused, she wanted to leave with the docs. I told her I would stop to pay alimony if she did not sign the document.
But I understood that she was coming back to Florida and wanted to come back to live in the house.
I told her I would leave the garage door unlocked so that she picks up her stuff, but she could not enter my house. She left. How this can be solved, she is at a friends place I only have a phone number and email to contact her
I would like to pay alimony on an escrow account so that they cannot file for contempt, but mainly I need the docs signed to sell the house.
