My wife and I split for over 14 years, I dont want her to have any part of the house
My wife and I are divorced for at least 14 years now. In fact, I live in Florida, and she got remarried and lives in Jamaica. We haven't been on good speaking terms since. I called her recently to tell her that I needed the title, as I wanted to sell the house we own as joint tenants. She told me she spoke with an attorney and she was told she is entitled to a half.
I won my Court case in 2011, do I need a new ruling to get the tenants out?
I won a Court case to evict naughty tenants two year ago. I really don't want to go back to Court, as they are very dishonest and I am afraid they will use tactics and win. What can I do?
