we are 10 days from being divorced. We still own the home and both are on loan and deed. he wants me to sign the quit claim deed v=before the house is for sale. We are filing an asset agreement with the divorce that says that I am entitled to half the proceeds. If I sign the quit claim, what rights do I lose?
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.
