Basically, he needs to pony up $23k a year ago and it doesn't look like he has any intention of doing so.

In their divorce, my girlfriend's ex-husband retained the family home: a mobile w/land. He had three years to refinance the property and cash her out. If, at the end of three years, he was unable to refinance, he was then to place the property on the market to sell and cash her out from the proceeds. He is now a year and a half past the three year mark.
Understandably, she would like to be removed from the mortgage and have the funds in hopes of buying her own home which is impossible at the current time.
Is this a lawyer-necessary issue? Financing a lawyer may become a concern if this is a lengthy process but consulting with a lawyer is a very real possibility to get an idea of what's involved. Can he be sued for the expense?
This is in Washington State... and if anyone has divorce lawyer recommendations for the Lynnwood/Everett/Marysville area, they would be greatly appreciated!
