    You can hire a lawyer to file a Motion for Enforcement. Your lawyer will most likely employ the assistance of a private process server who will get him served at home, at work, or wherever he may be found. Once served with notice of the Motion to Enforcement and Notice to Appear, your lawyer and the Court will take care of things from there.

The title company may simply draft a warranty deed explaining that you're a married woman dealing with separate property. Alternately, they may ask your husband to sign a document acknowledging that he has no interest in the property. As a side issue, I always recommend the use of...

    I agree with answer provided by other attorney. You hired the attorney who finalized your divorce. She knows your case better than anyone else. While it is ideal for attorney and client to "get along", a cordial relationship is not necessary for a lawyer to provide professional, competent representation.

    This appears to be an incomplete scenario. It's difficult to determine if this is a probate matter or real estate matter. Two things caught my attention and I will answer your question accordingly. First, you state that you and your husband purchased the property. If so, then you have a legal interest in the property. In Texas, you would be entitled to your community share. If property is located in Michigan, you would need to contact a lawyer in Michigan as each state has different laws...
