Does new husband have to sign documents to sell lot?


#1

I just heard from my ex. We owned a lot in Hampstead and divorced in 1992. The divorce decree stated that I would sign all necessary documents to affect the sale of lot when that time came. I will gladly sign all documents. I re-married in 1999 and am being asked to have my new husband sign these documents as well. New husband refuses - saying this occurred before our marriage and has nothing to do with him. Our divorce decree is from Tennessee. New husband has never been in either state.

Does my husband have to sign?

I cannot advise you on Tennessee law, but can say in certain circumstances in this State the new spouse has to sign a release to any property their current spouse is trying to convey.
