quit claim deed situation!!!

Posted on: 15th Feb, 2007 05:41 pm
Hello! I :( :( have a situation here and I definitely can use some help here. My ex-husband and I had been divorced for almost three years. We didn't left things in a good term. He owes me a lot child support and he is out of state. I believe he is currently living in Florida and I live in Chicago Cook county. Anyway, When we got divorced and house were awarded to me and It was on my divorce decree, and he did signed the quit claim over to me. However, the notary commissioner's seal expire before I can get it record from the county clerk. So with chance of getting my ex husband to sign it's almost a mission impossible. I don't exactly want to deal with him again, nor do I want to get a attorney. so what can I do in this situation??? Please help! :( :( :( :(
Hi,

As you have the divorce decree which states that the house is awarded to you and your ex-husband did sign a deed. You should contact the county recorder's office and tell the reason for delay in getting it recorded.

Make a written request for acceptance of the deed as valid and as you have all the legal documents which clearly suggest that the house will be yours, you will not face too many difficulties.

BY THE WAY, I HAD HEARD SOMEBODY SUGGEST TO ME THAT I SHOULD GO TO THE COURT HOUSE AND HAVE THE JUDGE SIGN THE HOUSE TO ME. HOW DOES THAT WORK AND WHAT PROCESS DO I HAVE TO TAKE IN ORDER TO GET THE HEARING AND WHAT THEY CALL THAT PROCEDURE?

Hi Guest,

Welcome to forums.

You can try out with a different notary commissioner. I think it will be a fast process compared to approaching the court and getting the judge to sign on the deed.

Thanks,
James.

Trouble is if my ex-busband is not there to sign they will not do the notarize the deed for me. Which that is where the problem is. I don't want to deal with him and he is trying hard to make my life a living hell. I di try to go to another currency exchange and they said they don't notarize the quit claim there and they can't renew it for me because it was don't at another currency exchange. Plus my ex-is not there.

I can understand Shy but if I don't think there is any other way out except that you contact your ex-husband to sign over the deed.

You may call him up and tell him about your situation. Also, tell him that you need his signature. Then send him he deed through mail if at all you wish not to deal with him. Request him to sign on the deed and send it back to you by mail. In this way, you will be able to avoid him to some extent and you will also be able to get the deed signed by him.

Thanks,

Sara

Sar, I just want to say, i appreciate the suggestion very much. however, I wish life is that easy, like I said his intention is to make my life a living hell the only reason he had signed the deed in the first place is undercircumstances. The judge made him sign at the court house at the time and I don't have an attorney at that time. so I didn't know that it needs another document and I certainly didn't expected to be in this mess. That is exacly why I trying to get help and advise here.

If anyone who is dealing the same problem that I have, please let me know if you have any other suggestion to solve this problem.

My daughter was forced to sign over her & soon-to-be ex-husband's house by quit claim. He told her that if she didn't sign the quit claim, that he would sell her car that was in his name and leave her without anyb transportation. Can she have this quit claim reversed?

karetha, once a quit claim deed is made out it cannot be reversed. there are only two ways, one that the new owner quit claim back to the original owner. second as you are saying that your daughter was forced to sign the deed, it has to be proved in the court. if it can be proved that your daughter did not sign the deed but was forced to sign it over under threats then the court will ask for property to be given back to your daughter.

Hi Karetha,

The only way to get out of this situation is to prove that your daughter has been under threats to sign over the house. The way your soon to be ex son-in-law is behaving, it does not seem that he will give back the property. So, as soon as it is possible, your daughter should contact an attorney and take legal action to get back the house. I think she will require the assistance of a legal professional to resolve this issue.

Hope you are able to come out of this situation very soon.

God less you.

Samantha
