Quit Claim Deeds are often mistaken as "quick claim deeds". To perform a Quit Claim Deed one must find the current property deed and find the property's parcel number. Then one must actually prepare the new deed, a process which can either be explained in detail online or can be taken to a professional to be helped with. Sometime countries and/or states have specific ways to formate a deed, so be sure to research information specific to your location. Finally the deed will need to be signed by the Grantor and any other important parties; the signatures wil have to be notarized to be considered legal.

How do you fill out a quick claim deed?

First of all, although it is often times called a "quick claim deed", it is actually called a "quit-claim deed". What one is doing who is transferring real property via a quit-claim deed is quitting or giving up whatever claim they have in the property. A quit-claim deed, therefore, can be a risky way of purchasing property when compared to using title insurance.From there, the process depends on state law. The Grantor is the person who is quitting their claim, the Grantee is the one who is receiving the claim.

Is it illegal to quick claim deed to someone other than family?

To start with, it is a "quit" claim deed. And basically you are relinquishing your share of the property to someone else. This usually happens when there are two names on the deed and one wants out of ownership. They usually quit claim deed their share to the other person on the deed. Family has nothing to do with it. The only thing that MIGHT affect this transfer is if it was agreed upon prior to taking ownership of the property that it can only be transferred to someone within the family. Rare, but who knows, this stipulation might exist. In most states one tenant by the entirety cannot transfer their interest in the property.

If a spouse is awarded the home in a divorce do they need a quit claim deed to record a new title if the former spouse refuses to sign the quit claim deed?

If the spouse is awarded the property in the Divorce Decree and it is referenced by the proper legal description, that should suffice and any title company would insure the property as belonging to the awarded party. In the State of Texas, a Quit Claim Deed is NOT a method of conveyance of real property, it is however a method for one to "quit their claim" on property and is used widely for that purpose. Some attorneys will make a Deed part of the divorce proceedings to be sure the document is executed and can be recorded, some attorneys just don't do this extra step. It would be best to have a Warranty Deed signed instead as that is the proper method of conveyance and will cover most any question that may arise on a Title Search. In the case of one party must pay the other party half or part of the value of the property to be sole owner, and Owelty Deed would be signed. It is a common mis-conception that a Quit Claim Deed (often called a Quick Claim Deed) is quicker and cheaper when in fact they cost the same to prepare, and usually the same to record as recording charges are calculated by the number of pages of the document.
