You would both have to sign and record a deed to that effect

If there was a formal divorce decree stipulating that the land is specifically granted to your husband, you can simply have a warranty or quit claim deed (depending on what type, if any, is specified in the judicially decreed divorce order) from yours' and your ex-husband's name, to his name. You claim that you have been maintaining and paying taxes, as such, you should receive consideration for your interest in the property that you are conveying. Again, this is contingent on the fact that the divorce decree did not mandate that you be required to do so. In summation, defer to the divorce decree for definitive guidance. If same was silent to the subject premises, you can simply have a deed prepared in PA, executed by you, with all corresponding transfer documents....have said deed sent to Brooklyn New York...where your husband can execute same...and then have the deed returned to you in PA...and have the deed recorded in the county clerk/land record's clerk's office in PA. Good luck to you.

This should be an asset covered in the divorce decree and should be conveyed AFTER the decree is executed and an order from the court is obtained ratifying any decree you and your ex agreed to. The decree should tell you how to do it (Warranty Deed or Quit Claim Deed) but if it is silent, I would suggest a Quit Claim Deed. I would also suggest hiring local counsel in Wayne County as you will need the deed prepared properly (correct grantor / grantees with proper legal designations (a single man/woman) and legal description) together with the Realty Tax Statement of Value Form. Good luck in this matter.
Was there a marital settlement agreement during your divorce that required your ex husband to sign over his interest in the property to you? You should contact an attorney and discuss your legal options?
