Got divorced in 2014, he will not sign a quic claim deed. I was told that I could use my divorce decree papers to get my deed changedif it was ordered to remove his name so I am wanting to know if " the plaintiff is awarded free and clear of any claim by the defendent the following property" will work to get the deed changed.
If the Decree has the appropriate language included as well as a copy of the legal description of the property, you may file a certified copy of the Decree with the Recorder and have the property transferred. You can take the documents to the county Recorder/Auditor and have them look at them and tell you if they are sufficient, although I would always recommend contacting your attorney.
