I am sorry that you have gone through such a difficult time, as long as your divorce has been finalized and the judgment and/or separation agreement allows such matters and the exception is applicable you should be fine. Since a local attny drew it up, he or she would be able to double check it against your divorce. Take care and hope things get better.

Whether the exception is OK depends on what the court order says. If the court order can be interpreted to require the quitclaim deed, then the exception should be OK. You might want to ask the lawyer to give you a quick statement in writing stating that the exception is OK.
