Yes, you can but there are questions:Do you have to give the ex wife proceeds from the sale?? If yes, deduct the lien amount from her proceeds.

If not, depending on the amount of the lien, is whether you can file yourself (depends on the state you arein) or you need the help of an attorney.

You might also want to file that same judgment in the state or county where she lives if it is not the samecounty as where you are filing.

AnswerYou can't put a lien on your ex-wife, only an asset. You can sue her, however.

Liens are obtained by means of a lawsuit judgment.

If the ex-wife relinquished the property in the terms of the dissolution petition she is no longer liable for encumberances(liens) or other legal action against said property in which case a suit is not posssible.

This applies whether the lien(s) have been perfected or not.

What is the value of land when husband dies and the land goes to the wife?

That depends on the land itself. Every piece of land has a different value in terms of dollars. Where the land is, what its near, how big it is etc... the land will have to bbe apraised by someone professional. At the time of death, have its value assessed professionally. Then, assuming the property is held JTWROS (joint tenancy with right of survivorship - default for owning property jointly with a spouse) the spouse receives the property outright, with half of the property receiving an increase in cost basis equal to 1/2 of the estimated value, and the other half having the original adjusted cost basis. If that confuses you, contact a good estate tax accountant.

Can a judgment that you never were notified about with your name spelled wrong be recorded if your ex-spouse kept the info from you until you found out years later?

Even though the name may be wrong, if the judgment applies to you, there is little you can do about it, unless you can prove that you did not know about, authorize, or sign for the debt.
