I have since paid off the house and would like to get her name off the title. How do I do this?
My ex-wife still has keys to the house and still has personal property in the house.
What rights do I have under exclusive occupancy? May I change the locks? May I demand she move her property out by a certain date and dispose of it if she fails to comply?
When and under what circumstances can she enter the property?
The home we live in is in my wife's name, but I have made all of the mortgage payments since we were married.
In our divorce, would I have any right to the property's value or receive credit for the amount of the mortgage I have paid off?
