In my divorce papers in 1994 in Detroit, Michigan, there was to be a quit claim putting the home in my name, which was done; and when the home sold I was to pay my ex $20,000 which was 1/2 of the equity at that time of the divorce. The home has not sold. Actually he is living in it right now. He has made a few updates to it. I have remarried. I think it would be right if at this time the home should be in joint ownership (him & me). He is actually having papers drawn up at this time; however, if I do this, I want to be absolved of having to pay him the $20,000 that the court originally ordered. I don’t want to very kindly give him 1/2 of the house and then be stuck having to pay him the $20,000 if he gets a hair crossed or something. I think it’s a fairly easy thing to do another quit claim, but I won’t sign anything unless I have been absolved of the original $20,000 and I’m not sure a simple paper by an attorney can do that. I have a feeling that there needs to be another court order absolving me of that. Help! (and thank you very much for it!!)

Re: Divorce Settlement
So the two of you are trying to figure out a transaction involving tens of thousands of dollars? And you’re looking for legal advice on the internet, right?
