In 2008 I hired the lawyer to do quiet title on the property (condominium) in Los Angeles .
The court order was issued .
According to the order I possessed 92% of property and my ex husband 8% .
In addition his 8% had determined value of 32k dollars .
In the order I was given the option to pay him off , and after
me depositing money to the escrow , court should
issue the deed from ex husband to me , and I would own 100 % . of the condominium .
Right now in2016 , I wanted to pay him off and sell the condo .
From the property report I found out that he (my ex), in 2010
took the loan against the property (after court order of quiet title ) loan of 94k dollars .
How was he able to do it , was it legal , and what are my options now
I am living out of US, I am in advanced retirement age . The lawyer who did quiet title , simply is ignoring my questions .
Can someone help ? regards eva

Sadly, a person that would try to steal in such a way, is unlikely to willingly repay anything. (Actually, that money was probably spent years ago.) You'll need sue him , serve him. have him jailed - and even then there is probably is no money left to recover. Sorry to not have better news.
