I filed a contempt of court for my ex to sell our house and

Customer Question

i filed a contempt of court for my ex to sell our house and give the money tol our children. Ex sends letter to children already typed out that they are giving up all right to the house and all money involved and gets them to notorize . He also get the so called buyer to notorize a statement saying that he paid my ex 77,000 in cash to him and now mr vasquez will buy his home back for 16,000 dollars in pmts .??how can this be? I am also an owner and i was not aware of his doings now he is sueing me for not agreeing .
JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: texas
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: I won my case and the judge signed the contempt of court, but it clearly states that he must put the house on the market and that he must sell it at a price that is agreeable to me. 77,000 is only an apraisal not an asking price for my property.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Yes how can a buyer assume that he is buying a house without the other owners signature?
