Asked by House Hunter, Fort Worth, TX • Thu Jan 28, 2010
During a divorce my attorney advised me to sign a Quit Claim Deed on the house my spouse and I were purchasing. At the time my spouse would not refinance nor buy me out. The judge specified in the divorce I no longer had any financial responsiblity to the house and specified this in the divorce decree. Now years later my ex is no longer making payments and I am still on the mortgage. I was very young and thought my attorney was representing me to my best interest. Now I wonder where he got his license to practice with that kind of advice. The house is nearly paid off, but has not been taken care of and if I tried to regain ownership I would inherit back debt and basically a white elephant. Any suggestions or thoughts would be appreciated.
