  5. How can I get my name removed from a mortgage following divorce?

    Answered over 2 years ago.

    Occasionally, a bank will agree to remove one party's name for a fee, but that is very rare and completely up to the lending institution. Most likely, the only way to remove your name from the mortgage is to either sell or refinance the house. And, it is advisable to NOT sign the Quit Claim until such time as your name is being removed from the mortgage. Otherwise, you could still end up responsible for the mortgage, but have no interest in the actual real estate.

    More likely than not, the house will be considered a marital asset and you will have been considered to have gifted her half of the value of the house when you added her to the deed, unless you have something from her in writing stating otherwise. You should consult with an attorney in your area before making any decisions.

    Hourly rates can vary greatly and are mostly based on knowledge and experience. They're typically anywhere from $100 per hour to $400 per hour. Newer attorneys may charge less, but they also may not give you correct or accurate information. As has been stated, you get what you pay for. When dealing with issues that will have a lasting impact on your life and the lives of your children (presuming children are involved), it's best not to make cost the main consideration in determining how to...

    Florida does not have common law marriage. Therefore, you are not married to him and probably have no property rights. He would, however, be responsible to support his child by paying child support. You should consult with an attorney who practices in the area where you reside.

    Why would you want to get him out of trouble for throwing you down, hitting you on your head and breaking your teeth? He should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law for treating you that way. There is absolutely no excuse for domestic violence. You should go to a local women's shelter for abused women where they can provide you with the assistance that you need.
