2 1/2 years ago my spouse and I signed a Separation and Property Settlement Agreement and he signed a quit claim deed to the home. I recorded both documents with the Wake County, NC. Resister of Deeds.
I (Plaintiff) recently filed for divorce and am in the process of getting my home ready to sell.
- I requested our marriage be dissolved and a judgement for absolute divorce.
- I requested the Separation and Property Settlement Agreement be incorporated.
Yesterday I received his (Defendant) answer and counterclaim.
He admitted to allegations in paragraph 1.
He denied allegations in paragraph 2.
He counterclaimed stating that upon the sale of the home shared and purchased by us both, the original deposit of $15,000 is returned to him and profits are distributed equally between us both.
First, the deposit on the home was only $8,378.
Second, he has not lived in the home for 2 1/2 years, not paid anything toward the home or contributed to any upgrades to increase the value of the home.
Third, I assumed all (approx. $55,000) but a $2.000 credit card debt he took in exchange for him signing the quit claim deed.
Finally, He signed the Quit Claim!!!
Does he have any claim to the equity of the sale of my home?
