Case #21-0047058

Client seeks assistance obtaining title to her home. Client and ex-husband divorced in 1995, and the property agreement, incorporated into their divorce decree, stated that the title to the home would be transferred into client’s name alone. However, a deed has never been executed to accomplish this. Client has provided a contact number for her ex-husband, but she has not spoken to him since their divorce, and she is uncertain whether he will now sign a deed. A volunteer is needed to prepare a deed and attempt to get the ex-husband’s cooperation. If unsuccessful, the volunteer may need to seek an order from Family Court directing the Office of Judicial Records to sign on behalf of the ex-husband. VIP can provide a redacted pleading used in a similar case as a sample.
