I am looking for help on amending a final decree of divorce. My divorce was finalized last November, with the final decree stating that we would put the house on the market, sell it and divide any proceeds. Since then, both the ex and I have determined that this will not be in our best financial interest and would like to amend the divorce decree to remove that requirement and re-finance the home to reduce the mortgage and turn it into a rental property. We are both in agreement with this plan but I do not know how to go about doing so. The title company will not process the title without the divorce decree modification since I am applying for the refinance as a single individual instead of as married.
Are there specific forms that I could obtain to complete this> What are the steps that I need to take (notarization, filing with the county clerks office, etc.)? Should I have the modified agreement drawn up by a attorney?
Thank you in advance for your assistance
