Can my ex-wife prevent me from selling our house, only my name on the deed?
It sounds like the house belongs to both of you. In all probability, if the proceeds are to be split, then you probably do not have the right to just sell the house, in fact, you two are probably required to agree on any sale.
As well, you might have a tough time selling the house if she is living in it and refuses to cooperate with showing the property.
If the decree states that the house is to be sold after the child graduates, you can not start sooner.
I would suggest that you have an attorney review the Decree to advise you of your options before trying to do anything.
