Most never ever never want to use a quit claim deed.
Do it right...to save yourself money and headaches in the future.
You may also need to go back to your divorce attorney for assistance.
The sooner the better.
They will require your former husband to sign the documents.
There will be an expense involved in order for all the documents signatures

However, if that did not happen-- then - you may need to have your ex-husband sign a warranty deed assigning all of his interest (if any) to you. (a title company attorney can help you with that or any real estate attorney). With regard to giving your husband of 22 years part of your interest in the home- I would definitely contact an attorney to advise you on what to do in that particular situation.
Best of luck
This is definitely an issue for a title company. You have a good reference below. I would also recommend Republic Title - they have always done excellent work in my experience.
They will be able to guide you best. By virtue of the fact that your husband has lived in the house, he has established homestead rights in the state of Texas. Now it should just be a matter of cleaning up the paperwork. The exact answer to this will largely depend on the divorce decree you are holding, so make sure you take that when you go see the title company.
There will likely be a fee involved for this service, but it will be well worth the price to get this corrected.
