My spouse and I divorced last year. I had already refinanced the house under my name (removing her from the mortgage). Due to a series of unfortunate events, I can no longer afford the house (it has been sold at sheriff's sale earlier this month). I've been approached to try and short-sell the house and think it may be the only recourse available to me right now. As a side note, the house was not addressed in our divorce settlement as we (I) expected it to be foreclosed on prior to the actual date of divorce.
The question is: To remove my ex-spouse from the deed, do I merely have her sign a quit claim and file it or is there more involved.
