I have a friend going through an amicable divorce right now. The two parties agree on everything, but there's a wrench in the works. My friend is willing to give up claim to the home they own together as long as she is also free of financial and physical responsibility for the house. The problem is the only way we know for that to happen is for her soon-to-be ex to refinance the property in his name, but they are underwater so he can't refinance. She could quitclaim so he would have sole control of the house, but she'd still be on the line for the mortgage/taxes/insurance if he didn't pay. Is there anything she can do to get away from the responsibility? Again, they are amicable so she's not looking to sue or cause any undue financial burden to either one of them. She just doesn't want a mortgage hanging over her head.
