Refusal to sign Quit Claim Deed

Due to my husband's arrest, I filed for divorce and was awarded all property, including our home. My ex-husband was convicted and is currently serving three 15 year sentences. He refuses to sign a quit claim deed on the house and the mortgage company (Chase Manhattan) tells me I can not sell the house, re-finance or remove his name from the mortgage without a signed quit claim deed. No matter what the court order states, you can not physically force someone to sign their name on a document. I am now remarried and this situation has been a major topic of 'discussion' between us. What can I do?
