Legal Answers
540 Questions Answered
Q. I am legally married but have not been with my wife is more than 10 years.
A: First of all, were you and she living in Massachusetts at some point during the marriage so that is this the place of the marriage break down occurrence ? Were there property interests acquired here in Massachusetts? If there is a connection with this state then on Motion for Alternate Service a Citation for Publication in a newspaper for her last known address would be the method.
Q. How do I have my Ex husband removed from the deed of our home? The divorce from 2017 states the house is to be mine.
A: So, if your Separation Agreement states he is to relinquish title to you to the real estate, is there a provision concerning the procedure and timing of same, i.e., at refinance closing or sale or a date certain? If there is not a trigger or defined date you should have your attorney pursue a Contempt if a letter does not work and your counsel can include prayers for your damages and counsel fees in Contempt. Part of the Contempt remedies would be appointment of a Master to execute a Deed out of his name and there is a not commonly used statute permitting the certified copy of the Divorce Judgment and Separation Agreement to be recorded in the Registry of Deeds for the locality, but this discloses too much and is not best practice.
Q. Hello, I have a question about releasing rights under homestead.
A: Your question is unclear and I suggest that you should state whether the last deed has more than one grantee listed and if so, does it state that the grantees are joint tenants with the right of survivorship and not tenants in common? Homestead waivers are separate documents. You should also have a landlord tenant attorney involved.
