How can I stop a quit claim after bankruptcy? 12 Answers as of June 09, 2011Wife wont sign quit claim after we both Chapter 7. She moved out and we are in divorce. Bank wants a QC in order to modify my home loan. House is upside down. She is lagging on signing it. Can't I use something like a partition or get a court to remove her from title? I only have 20 days left until foreclosure. The bank will stop the foreclosure if I can get a quit claim. They need her of title.

You can't just force her to quit claim her interest, even if the result is foreclosure. You may seek that remedy through the divorce court if that proceeding is still open.

Assuming that a divorce action has been filed, you should have your attorney attempt to get an ex parte order that the court clerk can sign the QC deed on her behalf. You can also file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy to delay the foreclosure.

This is a question for your divorce lawyer. If you don't have one and have a battle about the house, frankly you are already too late. If you have a lawyer you MAY also be too late, but the lawyer will possibly be able to navigate the waters of an emergency hearing. Bear in mind that the house must be divided in a divorce, so you don't just get to make someone sign a deed midstream in a divorce, nor can you file a partition when you are in a divorce.

Your right to a quit claim deed from your ex-wife is not related to bankruptcy. It would more likely seem to be related to your divorce. If the divorce decree ordered title transferred to you and your ex-wife failed to do so, the court could order her to execute such a deed or in the alternative, issue an order which has the effect of transferring her interest in the real estate to you. Consult with your divorce attorney. If you are still married your wife's bankruptcy does not entitle you to a transfer of her interest in the real estate to you.

Are you saying they want her to quit claim her interest to you? Is this something you can get your divorce lawyers to handle? Or your bankruptcy lawyer? Is it really worth keeping the house if it's upside down? Will its value ever reach its debt? Take a look at the modification provisions (if they've shown them) to determine if it's worth your while; they're often not.
