You must file your Request for Orders and bring your own notary public to Court on the day of the hearing with the document to be notarized.
File a request for an order asking the court to have the ex-wife sign the deed, and in the alternative, that the court order the clerk of court to sign the deed in the stead of your ex.
Call the court and find out what procedures the court follows. In this count, one has to make an appointment with the clerk who does the signing, and it is not the courtroom clerk.
Be sure to attache a copy of the deed that needs to be signed.
When you get the order, then, I agree, that you will need a notary to go with you to the clerk.
Do as much checking around the clerk's office to find out their procedures.
See if your self help clinic can help you prepare the paper work.
