What happens if we have an asset agreement to divide the proceeds of the home when the home sells but I sign the quit claim deed
1 attorney answer
Unless the agreement you signed or a court order requires you to sign the deed before the house is sold, you may not want to do so. It will likely be far easier to collect your share of the sale proceeds at the settlement table than it will be to get it directly from your ex. If you had legal representation during the divorce you should be discussing this issue with your attorney. If you did not have an attorney, now's the time to consult with one in person. That way the agreement can be reviewed and discussed along with whatever options you have.
