If you do not agree, then stop right here, and do not read any further.
I would imagine that you could request an Amended Determination of Homestead Status eliminating your interest although I cannot ever remember seeing this happen. If this is what you want to do, apply to the court by filing an Amended Motion setting forth the reasons why you wish the change.

The Order could only be amended if incorrect. Otherwise, you would need to deed your interest to the others, or to anyone for that matter, to take your name off the title.
