My recent divorce decree states that we will sell the house and split the proceeds. The economy is bad, the house wasn't selling. She wanted out, so we agreed I'd stay and re-fi so her name could be off the mortgage, which we did. The house and mortgage is now only in my name. We had a verbal agreement that this was ok and that I'd give her $5,000. Before I give her any money, I need to know if she could come back later on, if and when I decide to sell the house, and ask for half of the proceeds.
