Legal Question

Asked on: 9/27/13, 4:45 pm

When divorcing, the judge granted our family home to my ex. The settlement states she must get her own loan, and than remove me from the deed. Her attorney wants me to sign an interspousal grant deed. I called our home lender and was told she applied to refinance the house May of 2012 but she did not qualify, and since than, has not attempted to get a loan under only her name. Her attorney has told my attorney that I MUST sign the interspousal grant deed, but from my research, doing so only means that I have no interest in the home, but does not legally free me from the loan and if she defaults, the bank can come after me. I need professional advise, do I sign the interspousal grant deed without her getting a new loan only with her name? Thank you for your help.
