Quitclaim

I am recently divorced. I currently own 60% of the equity in our marital home. However, I owe my attorney fees and he is trying to attach a lien to the property. So far he is unsuccessful. ( The judge would not allow him to do it Becaue I am making payments).If I quit claim the property to my ex prior to the attorney putting a lien on it, Will this affect his 100% at any time if the house is eventually sold. My husband wants to buy me out because the house is rented by his son. And do this between ourselves.

Hi Linda,

You owe attorney fees. Is it a huge amount? You should better pay it off. I think they can put a lien on the property even after you quitclaim if you do not pay the fees off.

Hello Linda,

An attorney may put a lien on your property if you have any interest in the property.

Even if you have quit claimed your property, it may still get a lien placed on it and if you are deliberately trying to avoid the lien by transferring the ownership, your case might be considered as a fraud.

It is better to pay off the fees as early as possible.

Hi,

If you transfer your ownership rights completely, your property may not get the lien placed on it.
