Thanks for following up. Is there nothing in the divorce decree regarding your occupancy of the property while you two both own it?
Here's what I would do....I would insist they take this sentence out regarding the waiver of your homestead rights. Your argument will be that if by law the homestead rights are automatically terminated by a divorce, then the phrase is not necessary. And, by insisting it be included when by law they are telling you the divorce terminated your homestead rights, you are concerned they are trying to get you to give up something you do in fact possess. :)
