My ex-husband, in fact has contempt charges pending because he cashed out some of our retirement accounts and have hidden these assets overseas. I believe he is going to try to do something with the property like transfer it to his girlfriend, and I would like to secure it or transfer it to me and the children as stated in the court order without him signing a quitclaim deed which he is not going to do .
