I am joint tenant with right of survivorship of a house and property in WA, with the other joint tenant being my ex-partner. He wants me to file a quit claim. I want half the value of the property. He is wealthy, I am unemployed and in debt.
How do I proceed? He is now threatening to take me to court if we can't agree on a settlement. The relationship was an abusive one with him being the abuser. I would like to settle this without having any contact with him.
I currently live in a county other than the one the property is located in.
Thanks for any and all advice. I have tried numerous local resources but have yet to solve this legal puzzle.
