Have you filed for divorce?
The best way to handle this is to hire a local lawyer to file for divorce for you and have the judge award the house to you in the divorce. That is the least expensive, easiest way.
That is the only way and it can't be done quickly. Nothing can be done quickly. You may want to ask the title company if they can "except out" his claim and then go ahead and file for the divorce because there is no question that the judge will grant it.
Be sure you move forward with the divorce though. You could be liable for his debts, etc. that are being accumulated now and a judge can issue an order that addresses that as well.
If your question has been answered then I'd offer my best wishes to you and ask that you please not forget to leave a Positive Rating so I receive credit for my work.
Of course, please feel free to ask any follow up questions in this thread. I want to be sure that all of your questions are answered. In addition, once you issue your Positive Rating the question will lock open and no longer time out so you can come back to it anytime in the future if you think of any follow ups.
I'm going to be signing off in just a few minutes and will be back online early in the morning. If you have additional questions we can continue then.
