What is the name of your state? LA, New Orleans

I want to sell my house and remove my name on the mortage. My x-wife lives in the house and does not put it up for sale, even though there is a court order to sell or refinance the home. She is already in contempt for not following the court order.

What are my options?

My response:

Your only option at this point is to file an "Order to Show Cause Re: Contempt of Court" and to have her explain herself to the court, and why she shouldn't spend a weekend or longer in jail for her failure to obey a court order.

Then, you can also ask the court to force the sale of the house and to allow you to place it up for sale.
