My ex-wife has asked me to sign the divorce papers. We have been separated for over 12 months. I am happy to do so. We have a house that is for sale and has been on the market for 18 months. It could take up to 2 or 3 years to sell. It is in a community and most places take that long to sell. So my question is that if I sign the papers, then the house sells after the 12-month period and she goes back on the verbal agreements of splitting the money, can I go to court to get the money? Or should I wait until house sells and if I'm happy with the property settlement, sign divorce papers. Wanting to know my legal standing.
