Customer Question

My situation is similar. My husband was awarded 100% of the net proceeds from the sale of the house. I had always made the mortgage payments for 18+ years and was ordered to keep making them until the house was sold.
Now he wants to keep ALL of the escrow ($2500) and insurance refund ($245) checks and is threatening me with an Order to Enforce if I don't sign them over to him this afternoon.

Good morning. Based upon what you shared above, you husband may be wrong. The reason why I say this is because if he was awarded the net proceeds from the sale, that is ALL he would be entitled to. Any else would/should be returned to you or at least shared, absent language in the divorce decree, stating otherwise. Here, you shared that you have been making the payments as court ordered, so anything that is not consider or part of the net proceeds, should be returned to you. If you do not sign it over, the burden would be on him, to take you back to court, to try and enforce this and at that time, it would be up to the Judge to decide.
